DD is walking!!

My 14 month old daughter started walking Sunday. She was standing there holding on to her exersaucer. She let go and stood there for a few seconds, "danced," then took two steps before she lost her balance. She's walked across the living room since then. She still prefers crawling since it's still faster for her but is walking more and more on her own without encouragement.

Congrats, that moment is so exciting! It's probably my most favorite milestone.

And a huge benefit that I liked is it gets their face off of inspecting the floor. By that I mean my DS would spot the tiniest little crumb on the floor and want to eat it when he was crawling and I was constantly swiping things out of his mouth. When he started walking it wasn't nearly as frequently.

I didn't think of that benefit. DD does put whatever she finds on the floor in her mouth.
