So before now all attempts at getting this kid to take any sortof step while not holding on to a piece of furniture have been met with a brick wall of stubborn. Any bribing/cajoling/tricking/tempting with tasty treats and she just looked at me like “NO.*”
And then sits down.
I DO MY SELF.
Nothing has worked. And honestly I decided a while ago that the more I try the worse it will be . I didn’t want to turn this walking thing into a Battle of Wills. I just had to be patient and wait for her to decide on her own that it was time.
Today was that day:
Ok so that video isn’t the greatest. She was pretty tired by that point since by the time I was able to sneak away and get the video camera she had done that over and over and over again. The point is that she tried.
And tried until she was too tired to even stand. The good side to the stubborn is that when she sets her mind to something she is willing to work at it. I give it 2 weeks before she’s flat out running.
