Tonight, just before going to bed, Tomoe gave me a big surprise. She was playing in her bed at the far end, and I came over to pick her up and get her ready for bed. I said, “Come over here.” What she did next was amazing. She lifted her arms, like she always does when she wants to be picked up, and walked towards me. She walked with no support! It was only 3 steps, but she actually walked. It was almost a run.
On an unrelated note, she continues to say random words assembled with random syllables. She has now said “Japan,” “yellow,” and now “bad idea.”
