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!
