Today Ada walked by herself without coaxing. She’s walked before on her own, but only when we hold our hands out and encourage her.
Not today though.
This morning I was doing the dishes and Ada was happy pretending to color on the grocery ad with one of Rosie’s pens. She was intently bent over scribbling, though the pen wasn’t clicked out to actually write. She did that for at least 45 minutes.
Then as I was finishing the dishes she stood up, held out the pen, and walked across the kitchen to me.
She had such a proud look on her little face! She fell down several times, but got back up on her own and kept toddling.
Oh my heart. I will never forget the look she had.
Both of my girls love dancing. Anytime we have a spare moment we turn on music and dance.
Tonight we had already eaten supper, but we still had half an hour before bedtime can happen. (Or Ada just thinks it’s a nap…dangerous.)
What better to fill that gap than an 80’s dance party?
Here’s Ada reading one of her books on the potty right before bed. I love her pudgy little fingers pointing, and her baby voice…
Why is Ada so grown up? Soon she’ll be as big as Rosie. I might go cry now.
