We have been waiting for that day. The day she took her first steps. We had intervention/therapy people lined up, heck they are coming out today! As our ped reccomended.

But just the other day she took a few steps,VERY briefly. We were still thrilled though, texted and called everyone. Cheered for her. Got so so excited. We finally thought, yes! Our kiddo finally has it!

But, today, she just, won't. She has no interest, she is acting wobbly again, won't even stand for a second, maybe half a second if that. I tried to encourage her and she got super mad, cried, and flailed her arms, hit, and sat down and then started cruising again. But won't let go of anything, or try again. Absolutely won't.

I am so confused, I know she can now. I watched it yesterday, now she doesn't seem to want to again and is acting as if she absolutely can't. People where eager to see and well, doesn't look like that is happening. We have been waiting and waiting, encouraging, walking toys everywhere, rearegannging furniture. I am so so confused.



P.S we are working on possible sensory issues with textures (floors and such and new places) but she attempts all of this in her home where she is comfortable

My little girl is 16.5 mo and still hasnt taken a step. While on the inside I am so worried, I am trying to keep it cool on the outside. My pediatrician says that she wont worry until 18 mo.... so now its like a countdown. Literally, I am marking days off the calender.
