Her need to do things on her terms also means that she isn't really walking yet. I realize that 13 months isn't particularly late to have crawling as the primary mode of transportation; however, she started taking independent steps 2 months ago! She could walk forever if I hold just one of her hands. If any adult tries to stand her up and send her walking to another adult, she promptly drops to a crawl position, all the while sporting a coy little smile. I'm ready for her to be walking already, but I guess she'll just do it when she wants to.
Despite not walking yet, she actually seems more coordinated than Cy was at this age. She climbs into everything:
For the record, I neither put her in there nor shut the door - that was all her. And, as soon as I took the picture, I got her right out!
She had discovered our cozy coup, and while she can't make it go forward yet, she is great at getting stuck!
There's a happy face...
...oops, not anymore!
