Josie in Motion

. . . which is why there are no more pictures. I had to put down the camera and grab the back of her dress to spot her as she made her way up these very steep stairs.

Obviously, we need a gate on them. Till then, I have to watch her every minute. But then I pretty much do that anyway.

She is just on the verge of walking.  Recently she has taken three or four unsupported steps. Usually she's standing on her own, concentrating on something she's holding, and then she starts to walk -- but when she realizes that's what she's doing, she gets wobbly and drops down to crawl.

No recognizable words yet -- just an all-purpose Ap! said when she points to something, either because she recognizes it or because she wants to know what it is.  I think it might be her version of That!

What a long way she's come in eleven months!

Stay on your toes, Grandma.

So lightsome and fast, sweet too! So glad you get to witness her growing steps.

Wow, those are steeps stairs! She’s absolutely fearless. When she’s walking, she’ll be even harder to keep up with. But I know you and her parents wouldn’t trade these moments for anything in the world.

Yay, Gumma captured her climbing those steps, and the back of her dress are a fast one. No Josie will escape your notice. I'm enjoying her growth virtually too.
