So, I was getting worried that when Miranda goes into nursery in a month that she would be the only kid to CRAWL into the classroom. She has definitely taken her own sweet time, but she has finally decided that its time to WALK!
She has been cruising for months and walking holding onto our hands forever, but she just wouldn't take the plunge and do it on her own. Now that she is walking, she keeps surprising me. For one, walking is much quicker and quieter than crawling so she can 'sneak' up behind me. Also, when I see her walk into a room, I just start lauging because I'm so used to seeing her crawl.
Of course I thought that my child would be one of those kids who walk by 9 months and I hadn't even heard of kids walking as late as 17 months, but we're still pretty excited for her!
