Pippa took her first steps on her own tonight. Before this, we'd get her to stand up and hold onto us, and then we'd quickly take our hands away so she was standing on her own. If we were lucky, she'd take a few steps. For the past couple of days she's been experimenting with standing up from sitting down and maybe get a step in before going down. Tonight, she was across the room from me standing at a chair and very consciously let go and started walking towards me -- about 7-8 steps before hitting the deck. We're getting there!

In other news, she's been a complete pill to change -- either diapers or clothes. When we put her on the changing table she cries and kicks and tries to hurl herself off. Very difficult, especially w/ dirty diapers :( So I had the brain wave to give her a book during changing time a few days ago. Not only does it occupy her while we do what needs to be done, but now the second we put her on the changing table she yells "Book" (well, "BUH!") repeatedly and if the demand is not met soon enough she cries. It's much easier to change her now.


According to my mom, she used the same book trick on me, and look where it got me.
Man! Time to hide the car keys, huh? She'll be coming in late and looking at you like you're a dinosaur before you know it.
long run on tuesday while the grown-ups are gone, Pippa. Be sure the go slow so I can keep up (if you're anything like your dad).
Pippa walking -- that officially makes the August beach trip babysitting job harder. Even so, I doubt Pippa will ever be the babysitter's #1 complaint.
