Iris is possibly on the verge of walking but she’s still not ready yet. She is able to get herself up to standing pretty well and will occasionally let go when she’s not thinking too much about it. For example, she uses this activity table to get up to standing and she will lean on it while she reaches for objects with both her hands. She will sometimes pull away from leaning against the table and balance on both feet. When she realizes she’s standing without support, she usually puts her hands down to hold on to something again.
Iris has this little red birthmark on the back of her head which is covered now by her hair. It’s much lighter now and the doctor said it should fade away with time. It’s unique to her so I hope it doesn’t really go away completely.
