on this day, the day she was exactly 14 months old, my baby decided to walk! we knew she could do it. she has spent the last 4-5 months pushing everything she could get her hands on. push toys out in the street, baby strollers, chairs, her sisters! but when coaxed to walk between parents, holding hands, cruising, like normal babies, she steadfastly refused. finally, today, i saw out of the corner of my eye, movement. slowly, slowly, i turned to see Avery following me, walking like a pro. as soon as she saw me watching - she sat down. laughing, we played this game quite a bit, until finally she was confident enough to share her new trick with all of us. how will this personality trait manifest itself in years to come i wonder?
