Walk this way

For one reason after another, I've put off blogging about Harper's latest accomplishment. Not a skill she has mastered by any means, but it is one she pours a great deal of effort into every single day. Yep, she's working towards becoming an official, card-carrying pedestrian. It started around three weeks ago when her dad/trainer, Jeff, witnessed her first steps. She started out taking three or four solo steps at a time, which has evolved into canvassing several feet when the mood is right. If she is really feeling it, she just may go on a twelve-foot jaunt through the Ridgewood ladies locker room buck naked. Where is my camera when I need it?

Don't get me wrong--I'm not ready to categorize her as an official walker just yet. She still spends plenty of time crawling and cruising. Actually, most of her time is spent walking laps around and around the house while holding onto one of our hands. I thought all this activity might help wear her out, but honestly, only her parents and grandparents seem to be feeling the effects of this mini-marathoner.

We have yet to decide whether we are walking Harper, or if she is walking us. It is probably fair to say the latter is true!
