My phone was full so I couldn’t fully capture the essence of the change. So I have to hope that it’s permanently stored in my memory (and I probably just forgot your phone number).

She hadn’t yet figured out that she could push herself up to standing from the floor or back up from falling. She’s got it now and I don’t know how I feel about it. Aside from my baby growing up we’re in one of those valleys, you know, where everything is fine? Sleeping is all sorted out for the moment and everything’s smooth sailing, one of the few weeks where it doesn’t feel so hard. It doesn’t make it easier to accept all the changes.
