I was greeted at day-care yesterday with the exclamation that Vivian had walked all by herself all the way across the big room!!!
When we got home and started playing, I grabbed Daddy's slippers and stuck them on her feet. What a fun game. Put shoes on. Take shoes off. Put shoes on. Take ... we played this for 15 minutes before I finally called a halt to the fun (Mommy can only take so much).
I took Vivian upstairs to try on some of the shoes we've been given by friends. Put on a pair of sandals and ... she walked like a pro. It appears, all she needed was a decent pair of shoes!
After I had put her in her jammies for the night, she re-discovered the shoes and held them up. Of course, they didn't fit over her footed pajamas. So I found a pair of crocs that are still too big and then she spent about 20 minutes walking back and forth and back and forth between me and the recliner. Very impressive. Plus, who can beat pajamas and crocs for stylishness? :) The video was taken toward the end where she was getting tired and started to stumble a bit.
