But then today she seemed to leap ahead. While hanging out in the living room doing her own thing, I noticed she let go of the couch and started walking across the living room (she only got a few steps in), just going nonchalantly as if she always got around that way. Then as I was making dinner I saw her get herself up (one of the first times ever) and walked like 10 steps! Very cool. She never did quite that well again, but she kept on trying the entire time I was cooking.
At least in addition to getting into cupboards and trying to climb into the dishwasher. :-)
Yes, Hollyn has learned the magic of opening cupboard doors. For example, on Sunday I managed to locate both of her church shoes and laid them out where I would find them. Unfortunately she could reach them and I spent the last 20 minutes before leaving trying to find one of the shoes. At the last second - with everyone in the car - I looked inside of our pots 'n' pans cupboard and found her shoe inside a pot. Little nut!
