Recently, we have hit a plateau in gross motor but in turn we have had a burst with language (both spoken and signing). It has made mom quite happy to have a little burst of language...when one lags, a lot of fear enters into your mind. I'll talk more about that in another post. I don't want to overshadow the current topic!
We have 3 walking toys at home. Hailey has shown ZERO interest in any of them. She even fights using them during therapy. I had given up even pushing them for a little while and we've been focusing more on other areas.
You can imagine my surprise this weekend when my daughter crawled over to a lion walking toy at Grandma's and walked across the floor. She proceeded to walk back and forth about 15 times that first day. Her form needs a lot of work. We are a super long way off from walking independently, but for now I'm going to rejoice in the fact that she wants to do it!

And...a little video of some walking...
