Wobbly Walking

Libby is getting quite good at "pseudo-walking". She simply thrusts herself forward and churns her legs to keep up with her shifted body mass. We, her parents, are dragged along for the ride trying to make sure she doesn't fall over.

She really enjoys this pseudo-walking, so I don't think it's bad for her, but she is going to be quite surprised the first time she leans hard in the direction she wants to go and doesn't have a parent to catch her fall.

I imagine that first fall will not be her last either. Metaphorically, it will also certainly not be the last time she will fall while figuring out how to walk straight. But no worries - Shannon and I will be there to pick her up when she does.
