Look who’s standing on her own! All morning, she’d handstand, stand unsupported, then sit down. She’d pull herself up then let go.
Like it was nothing.
She also took three steps this afternoon. Shuffling steps. Then sat down.
But you can’t stop her from standing in the middle of a room now.
In terms of firsts, it was a good say. Ashlin’s older sister walked through the zoo, all afternoon. No strollers for her. Strollers are for babies.
I had the front pack to carry Ashlin, if Teagan got tired and needed to be in the stroller. We didn’t need it. I’m sure that if we didn’t have it with us, we would have needed to carry Teagan from the far corner of the zoo back to the car.
She listened and was a good girl, so we let her ride the carousel. We were in the front of the line, so she had a decent choice of horses and animals – there were lions and tigers and a bear, oh my! She almost chose a sledge, but I prodded her, a little, to chose one that went up and down.
I think she was scared at first, nervous about the motion, but she calmed down quick enough, and enjoyed it. Waving at dada and her sister every time we went around.
Her sister pointed back.
