My 16-month-old gets more confident on her feet every day.
She still has the "new walker waddle" and I just can't get enough of it.
I am enamored by the way she stands up, walks around, smiles a toothy grin...sometimes stopping to clap. It takes all of my willpower not to just scoop her up and bury her in kisses. But I try my best to just let her be as she explores the world and comes into her own.
This parenting gig is pretty amazing - the most breathtaking and brave thing I've ever done actually. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
NOTE - In these iPhone photos, my daughter is wearing the Petite Cakes shoes by Robeez (on-sale now for $16.99). They're soft, stretchy, sturdy, and sweet. And machine-washable! I highly recommend Robeez' soft-soled shoes for crawlers and new walkers.
P.S. If you would like to keep up with Robeez, you can Follow Robeez on Twitter.
