Is she walking?

A pretty common question I get about Mandy is, "Is she walking yet?" She is 11 months old and is a great, fast crawler. She's been mobile since she was 5 months, so thankfully I avoided the "Is she crawling?" question. She is into everything, pulls up on stuff and walks around with ease as long as she is steadied by an object or a hand or Emma (like in the picture). I imagine she will walk around her first birthday, but I could be wrong. Emma was 15 months and that "Is she walking yet?" question got really old. I know people are just trying to make conversation, so I don't get my panties in a bunch when I hear the question again and again. It is like the first 6 months of a baby's life when I heard "Is she sleeping through the night?" It is just a take off point to get me started about all the amazing things my baby can do. Yes, she is amazing. You'll be the first to know when she starts walking. I promise. I will probably even pull out my old relic of a camera and take some live footage. It will be a must see event!

Oh, do I remember those questions over and over and over and over again! You DO get tired of hearing them. Rile' didn't walk until she was over 13 months old, and Hunter will be a year on Friday and he's doing the same thing Mandy is, but he's still pretty wobbly otherwise, so I know what you're saying! Your girls are so precious! I love watching them grow in your blog. Someday, hope to meet them in person!
