Well THAT Was Short!

My dear Tree Faerie has been crawling for less than two weeks, but apparently she's ready to move on. Last night we were at a friend's house and I was letting her play on the floor in front of me. She was really focussed on the drum stand that was next to me, so I was just trying to make sure she didn't pull it over or hit her head on it. I was carrying on a conversation with my friend MC, so I was constantly looking back and forth between Tree Faerie and MC.

Now, for the last couple of days, it looked like Tree Faerie was trying to pull up on things, but I figured it would still be a while before she would actually be able to do it.

I was wrong.

She placed both hands on one of the legs of the drum stand and proceeded to pull herself up into almost a standing position. She was on both feet, but she was bent over instead of standing up straight because the leg of the drum stand just wasn't high enough for her to pull into a straight position.

She didn't stay that way for long because I gasped and scared her. I didn't mean to scare her, I was just surprised that she actually did it! I was hoping to at least have a month of crawling before she started pulling up! I don't want her pulling up yet! I'm not ready! But I am proud of my little girl. I have one smart cookie!

In other news, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding our AC problems. Both units should be fixed tomorrow, and it will only cost us an arm and a leg instead of a whole body. I can hardly wait to have wonderfully cool air, because dealing with a teething baby in 98 degree weather is just not fun.
