Look who's walking
Madeline has been cruising for months. For our non-baby savvy friends, this cruising does not refer to driving around slowly in a car or traveling by boat, but means she walks but only while holding on to things. When we got to Minnesota she started taking a couple of steps at a time unaided, usually from one piece of furniture to the next. She could walk, but wasn't willing to admit it or show off to anyone regardless of our encouragement. We got to Maine and it was the same story, a couple steps here and there but nothing more. Then one morning she let go of the fridge and took a couple of steps towards me, and as I slowly backed down the hallway she followed me all the way. She has not looked back (and sometimes doesn't look ahead all that well either).
