    If I remember correctly, she considers you her publicist and she really likes to milk things. So more than likely she is just making you work harder so she doesn't have to (wait - isn't that a commercial?).

    Maybe she can walk but she doesn't realize it. :-) Maybe she's afraid she's going to fall down.

    She's probably just not ready. It's considered normal up until the age of 18 months. Seems a bit early to worry.

    Not to seem stalkerish, but I went to your homepage to see how old she is/ 13 months, right?
    I wouldn't worry. My kids were 13.5, 16 and 13 months respectively when they walked. She'll do it when she's good and ready :-)

    You are funny. Maybe she is just getting really good at everything else before she starts putting her energy into walking. I bet the child has a vocabulary that would amaze a 20 year old.
