Little Miss Roo is practicing her walking!
Last Wednesday Rooney and I went to eat lunch with Eric at work. I used to work there, too, so I was catching up with some of my old co-workers. I was talking to a couple ladies who couldn’t believe how much Roo has grown. I was telling them that at 14 months she still isn’t walking. One of them said, “The longer a baby crawls, the smarter they are.” I laughed it off, thinking she was just trying to make me feel better.
To be honest, I have never been worried about her not walking yet. It is totally normal and common for kids to wait til 15 months to start walking. BUT when I have to carry all 24 pounds of her, sometimes I wish she was walking. I know it’s a double-edged sword because at times she will insist on walking when I could carry her faster. Still, walking is a crucial milestone that she will need to learn sometime! Plus, I just think it would be fun to see her toddling around!
