Walkers come in all shapes and sizes

Porgie loves to practice her nifty new walking skills. She has successfully figured out out to use her "old-woman" walker, without falling. She maneuvers it around corners and travels all over the house.
Then one day, the mail arrived. We received a box, which has also become a walker. It glides across the floor easily, and Porgie just adores it.

On Porgie's birthday, my mom sent her a little train, with a caboose attachment. Porgie discovered that the caboose is a great walker too. Except she is way too tall to use the caboose as a walker, so instead she uses it as a "kneeler." She travels all over the house on her knees, pushing the train caboose.

Yes, my baby is strange. However, I am pretty excited about her fascination with walking and her creativity in finding new walkers.

I love the pics. When did she start doing this?

Ah! We have the same train and my boys use it in the same fashion -- be careful, though, if leaned too hard on, it will tip and hit the baby in the chin. Learned that one the hard way ;-)

She's so fun. What a big girl!

What about laundry baskets? Those might work, too.

I tried my girl on the walker again yesterday at your suggestion but she still can't control the speed. Soon enough I am sure.

Your baby is precious!! They are all a little weird :).

BTW, I did get your email, and thought I'd emailed you back, but I checked my sent box and there's nothing in there. Grrr...my internet connection sucks at times, and sometimes things time out before actually sending, that's my only explanation. Anyway, I don't have your email now, so please email me again b/c I'd LOVE to paint something for you!! chastity779@yahoo.com

How sweet! Babies grow up so fast!

Claire uses laundry baskets as walkers. She recently discovered too that she can slide her play gym on th e tile and use that as a walker, plus she gets a reaction from the adults because the sound is wretched-what a bonus!

Wow, Baby E does the same thing. She has the same walker. She also likes to use boxes and laundry baskets. And has even pulled the "kneeler" at times. Hilarious.
