Willow is always on her toes when she's on her feet. I brought this up to her doctor when she started standing up by herself.

He told me that toe walking is fairly normal in children who are just learning to walk. Most children outgrow it. As long as your child is growing and developing normally, toe walking on its own is unlikely to be a cause for concern. It can actually run in the family. Persistent toe walking may increase a child's risk of falling.
