This is it! Reindeer has now discovered his key biped ability and is really trying to use it.
Today he would just randomly begin walking around; sometimes just a couple of unaided steps, sometimes ten or twelve. We made sure to encourage and praise each time, but he didn’t care if we were watching or not, he’d just go regardless.
Now he’s really getting going I’m guessing he’ll do more each day. He’s not yet mastered turning, but he’s fine with stopping to pick things up then carrying on walking.
We’re due to have a day out in the Big Smoke at the weekend. I’d planned to take him around in the sling (much easier for accessing the Underground on our own) and stop in a park or kids area for breaks. Now I’m wondering if I should get some reins to be on the safe side…
