Erica fell in love with the big beach ball Lena found in the spare room! She also likes that little plastic fish. All are incentives to take a walk, not that she needs incentives, she practices her walking all the time. Even when she's crying and trying to get to me, she still stands up and walks rather than crawls, even though her crawling in still faster! I think she feels closer because she's higher up so she keeps standing. That drive to walk really amazes me though, how she just gives it more and more and more. It seems to be having the opposite effect on her sleeping though - she is not sleeping very well lately!
