Monday night Rebecca was being a hyper little active creature, (stand up! sit down!)*N, (up the step! down the step!)*N, and we were discussing what exactly constituted a first step, stumbling on the way from standing to hands and knees? No... and how things like first steps seem to grow out of a continuum of action. I think it is hard to mark some point and call it the 'first' of something, when it is only marginally different from the actions that came before it. Rebecca then proceded to conclusively demonstrate what a first step was, by standing in front of her father then marching in place and stepping on his foot. Probably because he wasn't paying enough attention to her. (-_^) If walking follows in the, um, footsteps, of her other developmental tasks, it will be another month before she takes another step.
