Holly's First Steps

She has been threatening to do so for some time but this weekend at the ripe old age of 9 and a half months, Holly took her first real steps.

Holly has been mobile for about 4 months and over the past month she has desperately wanted to get walking.  Last week saw her learn to stand up from the floor unaided and to just stand there...waiting.  She waited until Thursday when she first started taking a single step or two tiny steps and then would collapse on her bottom.

On Saturday she showed off her new skill to her grandparents and that afternoon when we got home she had obviously had another boost in confidence because two times that evening she attempted four or five steps across the living room before collapsing.

I'm pretty certain that Holly will be walking more and more with each day that passes.  She delights in trotting across the living room holding her big sister's hands.  Yesterday evening I loved watching her holding on to Daddy with just one hand and walking through the house - she looked SO grown up.

That's all.  I just wanted to record it here on Mellow Mummy so that I can look back in awe at my little superstar.
