Paige standing and climbing
Paige is still not quite crawling yet, but she is getting very fast at army crawling around and is very mobile. She also has gotten very good at pulling up to a standing position. She will pull up on anything within reach and you really have to watch her now. We'll put her exersaucer in the middle of the living room and she will walk all the way around it while holding on, and will even let go and grab on to other things nearby. She's definitely not very stable yet and falls quite a bit, but she's learning fast.
Today after her nap Mommy came in and saw her standing up and took a picture with her phone and sent it to Daddy at work. We couldn't believe how big she already looks in her crib and how tall she is when she stands up. It seems like just yesterday we lowered the mattress, and we're going to have to lower it again so she doesn't fall out of it.
The same day, she managed to pull herself up on a step and climbed up a few while we supervised. We couldn't believe she is so strong and coordinated. We got a few pictures, and after this we're discouraging any stair adventures.
We'd put up the baby gate for the downstairs a while ago and now we're going to have to keep a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't go up!
