walking winter wonderland

By ER(13mo)

Yesterday I took my first two unaided tottering steps….and I did it a few more times so everyone could see. I even took half a dozen or more steps across the room when Grandpa came over too.

This morning I walked by myself all the way from the ranchslider to the doorway – I really wanted that wooden eggplant J12 was holding…..and she kept moving it just out of my reach. But I got it in the end!

I’m also talking a bit more. My most useful phrase is na-na-na-na-na. I say it if I don’t want something…like being picked up or passed to a different person.

A word that closely resembles “Grandpa” and is uttered whenever I see him would make his heart melt if only he could hear it – but by the time everyone else has quietened down enough for him to single out my little voice from the rabble, I’ve finished my greeting!

ooooooohhhhhh and mmmmmmm with rising and falling intonation expresses my anticipation at the food I’ve just seen.
Here I am saying “oooohhhhh”….some friends gave us some food and all of us kids got our first experience of raisins in little boxes!
