    Jack and Lily (9 months 11 days) have been cruising and walking behind their radio flyer wagon (which I love) for about a month now.
    Lily; however, has been getting into standing and staying standing without holding onto anything for about 1 week now. It is really funny looking. She has spent the past month half squating - she was sitting on one knee but had the other leg in a squating position with the knee out and the foot on the floor. It is hard to describe but it looked like she was about to shoot up into standing on her own any minute. Last week, she finally started and now she is a pro. Yesterday she got what appeared to be her first urge to walk and would take a tenative step. Today I started coaxing her to come to me a bit and wouldn't you know she sort of walk ran a step or two and then three. It is funny because she has too much momentum going forward but she is definitly doing it!!!!
    very very proud.

    One more thing,
    I just bought them this little basketball hoop and basketball and wouldn't you know it she puts that dang ball right into the basket every time. It sort of cheers when you slam dunk it and it took her a couple of days to figure out but now she just sits there and slam dunks like 10 times in a row!

    Jack is just cruising along and trying to avoid his sisters enthusiastic tackles, ear tugs, and hair pulls!
