Petra's a very confident stander now and can even pull herself up one-handed. She still hasn't thought of stepping though. When she wants to move forward she drops down onto her hands and knees, crawls a pace or two, then stands back up. It's not the most efficient method of getting around, but it works well for her. I wonder when she'll discover stepping – watching her learn about her physical capabilities and expand her range of possibilities is fascinating. She's got the busiest brain and body on the block.
