For nearly a month now, the Blueberry has demonstrated a love of standing and is already on his way towards cultivating the independence that comes with it. Now when I put him on his feet (or he gets there himself) and I attempt to support him under his armpits, he pulls my hands into his. It's like he's saying, "No, Mommy I don't need you to hold me up. I just need a good pair of walking sticks."
Numerous times a day, his Daddy and I walk him around the apartment. His favorite trips are when we go all the way from one room to another. He still needs some prompting to move his feet forward, rather than simply up and down but he's learning.
