A couple of weeks ago, I set Kate down on her chubby little feet and to my amazement she stood there balanced for quite a while with no help at all! Bill too saw this wonderous event so we clapped and cheered (as all good/crazy parents do:) We then tried to get her to stand some more and tried to see if she'd take some steps. Our quick Kate caught on fast to what we were trying to get her to do and in true stubborn fashion, decided to not play along. She'd lean back against our arms when we set her down on her feet. She'd hold on tight to our hands. She'd instanly put her hands forward to sit herself down. And the silly girl giggled the entire time, knowing full well we would play this game her way and her way only.
Well, like I said, it's been a couple of weeks and she still will only play her way! No walking for this little tyke!
