Here's a little parental tip I learned yesterday. Instead of buying fancy walkers that encourage your little one to walk, just go to Costco instead. Do your normal shopping- you know where you go in for 3 things and come out $200 later, including 2 restaurant size vats of mustard that you will never use, but had to get because it's such a good deal. Be sure they pack all your purchases in a box. When you get home and unload everything, flip the box upside down on a smooth surface, place baby's feet on the ground and hands on the box and be prepared to be amazed. Who needs walkers? And, said box is also a great way to keep toddlers entertained too.
Ella likes the box too.
