The Bean has started cruisin' (i.e. walking whilst holding onto furniture for balance). This is lots and lots of fun. She has mostly stopped falling over now, which is good. Fewer goose eggs on the head. And she is very confident. I've heard of lots of babies who cruise for a very long time before walking because they are too scared to let go. Not the Bean. She can get up and actually let go of the furniture while standing.

She's going to be walking in the next six weeks, I swear.

In other news, the Bean also appears to be starting in on her top two teeth. So life is a little hectic around here.

I'll be on a three day hiatus as I prepare for lab meeting, but when I return, I promise a post I've been mentally composing for weeks:

High quality childcare, A feminist issue for women with and without children.

Cruisin' sounds exciting, and I am sure walking is not that far off :)

Looking forward to that post you are promising!
