Meet Sporty Spice

by Cate on September 24, 2008

Madeline has been working very hard the past few weeks, not content enough to know how to crawl like a champ and sit ramrod straight.  No, not her.  For the past two weeks, she’s been pulling herself up to stand, and then since last Friday, she’s been tentatively going hands-free for a moment or two.  Yesterday, when I took her to the office, she took one step on her own.  Today, two.  Every time I see her standing up, I tell her to sit down.  She’s so not listening.  Ignoring her mother now must be training for the years to come.  And now when I go to set her on the floor, she makes her legs super-stiff and won’t bend them to sit.  “I’m going to stand, darnit!”

I am so not ready for her to be walking already … only problem is, I don’t think she cares.

Two Hands

One Hand

One Step at a Time

Fussy Pants

*Disclaimer: I promise I did not torture her here. She was mad because I took away something unstable that she was using to hold herself up.  Bad mother.  Bad mother.

Of course she wants to walk, she has a great outfit and shoes to show off! Too cute.

Look at her! Cute outfit too!

My nephew’s daughter is 6 months old and she has decided to pull herself up on furniture so she can start following her 2 year old sister. Yikes!

Great shoes, cute outfit! I love how tiny she looks standing up. When they start walking, it’s over!

Way too cute…but you know, I think there’s a time when all kids ignore their mothers. I hope this doesn’t last for too long.

Wow! Evan is just now starting to walk & he’s 15 months old. I guess he listened when I told him that Mommy was a-okay with him waiting to walk. :) They grow up so fast!!!! She is such a cutie!

Wow. Walking at 7 months? I don’t have kids, but that seems early to me. My niece is over 1, and she’s not there yet!

Wow, what a quick learning little girl! You gotta be really proud of your little princess
