Foxtrot, Swing, Cha-cha...those are steps

Ma Chere reported from the front room -- just out of my eyesight -- that the little girl took her first step yesterday.

I queried further. It turns out that the little girl stood up on her own with nothing to grab onto -- which she's been doing for at least a month -- then she moved one foot forward. Then she fell down, twisting, to land on her butt.

I don't think that counts as baby's first steps. For one thing, it wasn't steps, it was only a step. For another, it didn't alternate feet.

It was more like baby's first lurch. Except she's been lurching for months.

It's just a lurch.

But suffice it to say that she's closing in on walking. But she'll have to pick up the pace if she wants to fulfill her mother's prediction and take her first steps before her first birthday. Less than a month to go!
