Catherine's still super mobile and all over the place. She's standing and cruising but knows that she's far faster crawling so any attempts at walking result in her plopping down and crawling the rest of the way. For better or worse there are very few obstacles she's not willing to crawl up, over or around.
If I take my eyes off her for a second at the park she's crawled away and up the stairs and headed toward the ropes in the big kid section. The girl has yet *knock on wood* to have any real separation anxiety. Even at daycare I go in and set her on the floor and by the time I've turned, she's headed toward the shelves.
This means as we have our work cut out for us when we're working in the yard or outside. Catherine's always been one to entertain herself but now its worrisome when she's busy for too long because it generally means she's in trouble! She really likes our front planters (that we have yet to plant or remove so they're mostly full of dirt (okay) and rusty nails (not so cool)).
And of course, as much as I love all of Catherine's activity and chatter, there's nothing sweeter than a baby sleeping. She's a pretty good independent sleeper (though some upcoming travel may challenge this notion):
