One of the things we did with all the kids was to prop our feet on the coffee table or ottoman and let the toddler stand between our legs. They felt secure and were less likely to fall. Have you put her in excersaucers our a walker? Do you spend a lot of time on the floor with her? I would suggest not using the walkers and such and just do a lot of floor time with her. Still though, she may just have her proirities just where she wants them. I think they all wake up in the morning and have an idea of all the things they want to do. They're such amazing small people!
