11-52  Lately (finally) Lucy has been obsessing about walking everywhere.  About two weeks ago, we made the decision to stop picking her up and carrying her every time she asks (which is all the time…) The fact that she is still so tiny made it easy to just grab her and go where she wanted, but I was feeling like it was stopping her from attempting to walk.  She had numerous fits and tantrums, but eventually she started grabbing my hand when I would offer it to walk her to where she wanted to go (side note: it was so frustrating, because, um…she could still crawl! So why did I have to carry her everywhere?)  She’s still only taking about 4 steps on her own at a time, but I think she could do more if she was willing.  The problem now is that she throws tantrums when we don’t walk with her to where she wants to go (which is almost always outside).

She’s a girl on a mission.
