She got so sick of trying to crawl in her little outfit. It just was NOT working. She fussed about it for a while, then she just stood up and started walking around. Then she realized, "Hey, this feels pretty good! No sore knees!" Sure, she still falls over quite often, but she stands back up and gets going again.
For the record, both Katie and Annalisa walked at age 10 months and 11 days. How's that for a sisterly bond?
