What to muse about today?

I'm still standing

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.

Yay Ashlin!

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.

On a Carousel

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.

      Thanks! I know. I really wish she would slow down. She’s hit so many milestones recently, she’s growing up way too fast!

      I think somethings may be easier if she walks, but so many aren’t. Crawling is bad enough. LOL!

    How wonderful! Charlotte is crawling like a speed-racer and now WALKING with her push-toy. Oye! But they are playing with each other mother and it’s wonderful to see. Yay for T too! Our big girls rejecting the strollers! What zoo did you go to?

    • lisasff says:

      I suppose I shouldn’t have been too surprised, Ashlin’s been using her walker for a while now. We didn’t have them for Teagan, we just let her cruise along the boxes as we had just moved. Hum…

      We were at Beardsley, cute little zoo, with just enough to keep the girls entertained. Ashlin was pointing at things all afternoon, Teagan loved the wood chips. Sigh.

      This was one of the first times she’s walked all the time and not hitched into the stroller. Instead of the big double, we just took the umbrella stroller for Ashlin, and tucked the front pack underneath. Teagan insisted on walking. Ok. No big deal. But could tell she was was super tied by the end of the trip. She took a 2 hour nap after we got home, slept hard.

    that should read, “playing with each other MORE” not “mother”. LOL!

    Uh oh…batten down the hatches! She just can’t wait to run after her sister!!

    • lisasff says:

      No, she really does want to go after her sister. She was better at standing today, did NOT want to sit or crawl, but wasn’t good enough to do more than one step or so.

      Teagan was just shy of 13 months when she walked at your place… we have a bit of time :D
