So, Norah is still not walking. I mean, she's only 13 months old and the average walker is around 15 months, so its not abnormal or anything. Besides, she gets around plenty well crawling on all fours. She hasn't really figured out the climbing off the bed or the couch thing either. No matter how many times I try to get her to flip around and crawl down backwards she continues to try and go head first.
Today we went to two parks. The first park we went to with Rusty and he taught Norah how to climb up a slide. Then the second one, the one here in town...oh my gosh. Norah climbed up the little steps like a champ, though she has never crawled up steps before, laughing like a lunatic the whole time. Then. THEN! She got to the top of the play equipment and launched herself head first down the slide!
No fear. No waiting to make sure someone was at the bottom (though Jasmine was there, of course). She just crawled to the top, laid out, and flung herself down the slide.
Its amazing really, this little person in control of her body, with a strong will and a crazy laugh, this wonderful little girl that Rusty and I are raising. I wish I had taken a picture...
