yes, that’s right. emma beth is finally walking. all on her own. with no help from mommy or daddy. but…. with this new independence comes new trouble for the princess. you see, now that she can walk, she doesn’t want any part of me. she wants to do things all by herself. at stores, she will squirm her way out of my arms because all she wants is to get “doooooowwwwwwnn!” she wants to pull things off shelves, climb up and down steps, and even play with all kinds of dirty things that her daddy would never approve of. she refuses to hold my hand for fear that i will dictate her path. she has become little miss independent. 😉
i love that she is walking, but man, i’m not ready for the new phase in parenting her. for both of our sakes, i better get some control stat. after all, i’m still the boss.
