To quote DS, “Oh My!” (This is much better than him saying, “Oh Shit, Oops!”)

DD is growing up WAY too fast! She has always loved to stand (just like her older brother), but in the last day or two, DD is now able to pull up into a standing position. By herself. She is also letting go of her hands to stand up on her own (but falls against me when she does it). She does this repeatedly and doesn’t give up. DD also has started to cruise (taking small steps while holding onto something) a step or two.


Keep in mind, she is 7.5 months old. She can really only crawl backwards. (DD can move, too!)

DS only crawled for less than a month and started walking just five days shy of nine months. I think DD will be on par with that. SO CRAZY.

I am so impressed with her persistence and aggressiveness. DD attacks and doesn’t give in. I love that about her. She knows what she wants and does what she needs to get it. (This includes all her brother’s toys and none of her own.) Go get it, Baby Girl!
