Exploring our back yard. Baby girl has started taking a few steps on her own here and there. Mostly I feel impatient and want her to walk RIGHT NOW because it will be SO FUN. SO FUN!
But then there is that other little part of myself sitting behind her desk and raising her eyebrows saying, "Really? Do you REALLY want her to start walking?" I've been mostly ignoring that little self because walking will be SO FUN!! But I have no doubt that she will be there to say "I told you so," when I am exhausted from trying to keep a toddler from running out into the street and remembering how easy life was when we had a sweet little baby who crawled so slowly and who was so cute and easy to catch.
