I have a very active 8 1/2 month old. She started standing, scooting, sitting and crawling (in that order) at 6 months. She's starting to let go of furniture to stand on her own and I think walking is around the corner. She also prefers self-feeding and is intensely curious.
So while I'm thrilled she's so happy and healthy... she's hard to keep up with! I really need ideas because I'm exhausted as it is running after her.
Right now I tend to pack up a gift bag of her toys and she'll spend some time pulling things out, playing, and making a circuit around the room to coast the furniture and back to the bag. Sometimes she'll let me put her in an exersaucer, but she gets frustrated and wants to be mobile.
