I got Guppy out for Turf Time at the gym, and she is getting braver and braver. Not only will she leave my lap now, she will go crawling off by herself aaaaaalllll the way across the room. I left her alone in the middle of the room to collect her droolrag at one point, and there wasn't a peep out of her - not one squawk of abandonment or panicked realization that I was walking away. We had some very fun interactions with a few older children (and one younger one who is a really excellent walker but had nothing to say).

Then I got REALLY brave, and took her shopping, where I bought All The Things. And she was an angel. She giggled at people, and made unhappy noises exactly once - I gave her a mum-mum, and she was happily engaged in nibbling on it and looking around after that. She tried to give my rainbow hat to the cashier, and was generally very cheerful and alert throughout the rather long expedition.

She fell briefly asleep on our way home, roused to crawl around the house enthusiastically for an hour, and is now napping.
