This week has been full of a bunch of new adventures for us Riplets. I've been practicing walking with my push toy (wasn't my idea, mommy told me I needed to), Jack has been practicing walking as well with his PT, Katie and Jordan has been walking and walking and WALKING all by himself all over the house. He's actually been "practicing" it, too because he keeps walking the same course throughout the house. He's learned how to stop (while walking) and bend down to pick things up again and he's trying to get to standing without having to hang on to anything. He actually made it work two times yesterday, too!
Since I get slightly annoyed (mommy says jealous) whenever Jordan walks (for the record I took 6 steps yesterday all alone!) and everyone claps, I have decided its time to learn a new trick (my "so big" arms aren't getting the claps like it used to) so I've learned how to dance. I shake my hips, wiggle my hinder (Auntie Dawn says you can't use the "B" word on here) and shake my head. I think I am pretty good at it, too. Jordan thinks its funny, he laughs and laughs when I do it. I bet he's just jealous of my skills. Here's a video of me dancing.
Jack has also decided he's done letting Jordan get all of the clapping and attention. He's been practicing his climbing skills. He leans over his bench he uses with Katie for his PT and he pulls himself up on top of it. Once he's on top he sits and then jumps off onto the ground. Here's a few pictures mommy got of him doing it.
