Lately we've been encouraging Emily to walk. We would plunk her down on her feet, and encourage her to just take some steps to her toys or to Mommy. Her response was always to take one or two steps, and then gracefully lower herself to the ground, where she would revert to her trusty crawl. I always thought that watching Mommy and Daddy or maybe her little toddler friends walk all over the place would make her realize that walking is a faster and far superior form of locomotion. Well, this weekend something clicked, and she has decided to try walking more than a few steps to get from place to place. With all the encouragement we give her, Emily is quite proud of herself, as you can see in these videos.
