I'm in awe of my daughter. When we arrived at the hotel what seems like years ago (but was actually just under 4 months) we were given a quiet, weak, sad little girl. We had been told prior to travel that she was walking unassisted - she wasn't. She could cruise along furniture with the best of them, but let go and she'd fall. By the end of our trip, she'd take about 10 steps alone. She would smile and we got a laugh out of her every so often.
Now, we have a little girl that loves to have her picture taken. When we grab the camera, she'll walk away from us, turn and smile - she then rushes back to see herself in the screen and will reply "aaawwww".
She has a big 'ol belly laugh that we hear frequently
And her gross motor skills? See for yourself
