Lily's First Day Walking in the Big Outdoors

Today I decided to take Lily to the local park. Its not the kind of park with swings, its the kind that just has grass and paths and benches. Its always empty and its a lovely place to go to have some outdoor fun without other children running around.

Lily has been walking around the house confidently now for the last 2 weeks and doesn't crawl at all. She has also had a stroll around Mothercare on her own, but never outside.

Today I decided it was the day to try the next step and the park was the perfect place.

As soon as I got her out of the pram she was off! She was going a little to fast for my liking and I tried to encourage her to slow down. But she was loving the freedom and the independence and giggled as she walked. She definetly wasn't going to slow down.


She walked back and forth on the path, and wasn't even interested in stopping to see the flowers or tree's which she normally would be very interested in.


She was walking so confidently and loving every minute of it. She Took a few breaks and would come to be and hold onto my legs or want to be picked up and we sat on the bench for a little bit, but not for long as she wanted to be walking. Ive been told by some she is to young to be walking so much, but I don't agree. If she wants to walk, why should I stop her?


We had a couple of tumbles to the floor and most the time it didn't effect her but one time she did have a bit of a bump  and it did give her a few tears. This didn't put her off though and she soon picked herself back up and set off walking again. 



I really look forward to more trips out now she is happy to walk. I also have got her some reins so we can walk to the shops or in busy places. 

So proud of my little princess!

  2. Awww, she is doing brilliantly! How old is she? I disagree that a baby can be too young to walk around. If she is walking then she's obviously ready. After all, you can't force a baby to walk before they are ready.

    1. she is 15 months. I've had some mixed reactions from people in the streets, some are like aww how cute, and had some funny looks from people and some parents saying they wouldn't dare let their child walk in the streets yet. Even though Lily is in Reins so she cant go anywhere.
