The Pie has really started cruising over the past couple of weeks. She pulls up on the Ottoman (which is what started the cat fight) and cruises around it. Sometimes she jumps the gap to the couch, and then cruises from couch to couch and back.
It’s an exciting new development, and a phase that’s going to be over pretty soon. The Baby Who Never Crawled has already become The Baby Who Cruises and will soon become the Baby Who Only Runs.
She has had a couple of good tumbles. She has hit her head but is learning her balance. I try chase her around so she doesn’t fall and get hurt, but I try not to save her from every fall. It’s hard as a mom to let your baby fall when you know you can prevent it. She has to learn though. And she seems to cry harder out of surprise than injury.
The days of reaching for the couch are going to be few. Another little thing I want to enjoy, appreciate and remember.
But not now, I have a baby to chase around the living room.
