New Skills

Munchkin is a busy, busy girl.  In addition to teething (we have 4 teeth coming in! All four on the top.  The middle two have cut and one on each side of them are right behind them.) Munchkin did two new things yesterday.

The first new thing she did was pull up photo(7)to standing all by herself.  She’s been pulling on on The Man and I for awhile now but yesterday she pulled up on a triangle pillow.  I was folding clothes and I saw it out of the corner of my eye.  I was shocked when I saw that she standing.  Munchkin looked at me and grinned.  She looked so proud of herself!  I was so proud of her!  She hasn’t done it again but I’m sure she will again soon.

Then later last night, after tubby time and right before bed, she was standing in front of me while I sat on the sofa.  She was holding on to my knees and shifting her weight back and forth between her legs. Then casually she removed her hands and just stood there.  All on her own.  I don’t remember how long she stood there for but it was least 30-45 seconds.  I was just in shock that my baby was standing!

She wants to walk so badly. I find it amusing because she still hasn’t rolled over.  I think she’ll be 2 before she rolls!  But walking?  She’s working on it!


  1. Awww she is so adorable, I'm sure she will be walking in no time. :)

  2. Penny pretty much skipped rolling - she didn't care! But she went to crawling and pulling up pretty fast, and then took her first steps at 10.5 months.

  3. Don't you just love these milestones? It is truly miraculous how kids grow!
