An update on Sonia's mobility

The Great Sosini is sooooooo close to walking! Like I posted on Saturday, she is now walking while holding onto our hands with one of her hands. Yesterday, she took a couple of steps toward me.... She was standing while holding onto the couch, and I was sitting a few feet away. Sonia turned to me, smiled, and took a couple of shaky steps that were more like a controlled fall. But she repeated this feat several times-- even for her daddy-- so I do have a witness! My baby is making good progress toward walking.

In the meantime, Sosini is still zooming around on all fours. All fours, that is, unless she's doing her Quasimodo/Igor crawl. When she wants to crawl while holding something, Sonia adopts a bit of an odd gait. Sorry the lighting in this video is so strange, but you take what you can get when you're videoing a kid who refuses to perform her tricks on command!

That kid is ADORABLE and it's been way too long since I've seen her. Go, Sonia, go!

I love her crawl! Especially with her chatter during it. lol! Any new words?

Well, she has been saying "baby" a lot, but not to anything in particular. "Tickle" is still her clearest, most consistent word.... "Mama" takes a backseat to "tickle tickle tickle" (while pretending to tickle herself or me). Ha!

I have heard that progress on language slows down while the kid is learning to walk. You can tell Sonia is teetering on the brink!!
