Near the end of his visit they settled on a particularly fun activity, walking up and down our long hallway. One would start, the other would follow, and there would be expressions of joy all along the way, especially when they reached the end. They have both recently become comfortable on their legs and the joy of walking! well, it reminded me that perhaps this daily occurrence should not be taken quite as much for granted. At one point, this was an accomplishment.
My daughter also illustrated that she had figured out yet another part of the world. She found our set of extra keys that we let her play with. She picked them up, marched straight to the door and tried to put them in. She didn't bother with the door knob, just touched the keys to the door. That's what I do right? The partnership of the doorknob with the keys seems to still be a mystery, but I'm okay with that.
