Brian and I were so lucky tonight! This happened right in front of our eyes!!
Take a look...
Brian and I were hanging in the playroom reading a book with Hope just feet from us on the carpet. I saw her out of the corner of my eye and quickly grabbed my camera (which is never far from reach... ever!). This is what I witnessed...
Thinking... "What did I just do?? And HOW?"
She scooted in her own way (not crawling just yet) over to here where she showed off her donkey kicks!
And then... exhausted.
I'm so happy for her! It's a lot of work to make something like this happen. Because of Gavin, I know all that's involved. Motor planning is definitely something that's easily taken for granted - until you meet someone for which it doesn't come easily at all. Everything a baby does naturally is such a miracle to me.
Thank you, Gavin, for the gift of appreciation you gave me so long ago.
And congratulations, Hope! There's a whole new world for you to discover. And we're ready with lots of fun and enticing toys and colors and textures - all just for you.
I know what you're thinking - the baby got up on all fours. What's the big deal? Happens every day.
And to that I say...
I know!!!!! The baby got up on all fours!!! It happens every day - and today, it happened right here.
