This morning, Olivia was standing at her toybox off to my left, and I was sitting on the floor next to her staring blankly at the TV (it takes me awhile to fully wake up). And it happened...she toddled over to me. I wouldn't have even believed it except that I saw her out of the corner of my eye. Three perfect little steps and then she sort of fell in my direction. Just to prove to myself that I wasn't imagining it, I managed to get her to do it two more times. And that was all I could get out of her. She's a little too impatient to stand still for two seconds and then obediently walk in my direction. There are toys to be played with, after all. Distraction everywhere! Still, it's a start, and now that she is becoming aware that she is, indeed, a biped, I'm sure it won't be long before she masters the walking thing.
