We discovered today that Abbie can climb stairs. I’m not quite sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but either way, she flies up them. Coming down is a different story though. We’re trying to teach her how to go down backwards, but she didn’t quite get it today. However, by the 2nd time up the stairs, she wasn’t even using her knees anymore – just hands and feet!
The other thing she did today for the first time was stand up by herself without hanging on to anything! I was laying on our front porch with her, waiting for the movers. She crawled up next to me and pushed up to her feet on me, but still hand her hands on me, and then she just pushed off me with her hands and stood up next to me all by herself for about 3 seconds before she realized what she was doing and then grabbed on to me again. But she wasn’t wobbly or anything. She just straightened up and then stood there. I think she’ll be walking soon. Unfortunately Mark missed it.
Oh, and she’s recently started taking our cell phones and holding them up to her ear. It’s pretty cute. Except she holds them in her hand, and then bends her wrist and holds the back of her hand up to her ear with the phone in her hand. It’s pretty funny. I need to get a picture of it.
