I remember a conversation I had with my mom not too long ago. I was wondering when Katie would start moving around, and she warned me not to be too anxious – there would be a time I would wish she wasn’t quite so mobile.
I also remember thinking she was nuts. Why in the world wouldn’t I want Katie to crawl and walk? That’s when all the fun starts, right?
Imagine my surprise when I gave a friend that same advice yesterday!
Don’t get me wrong – I’m thrilled with all of the progress she has made. Playtime is so much more fun, and it seems like everyday she’s improved on the day before. Still, she’s definitely keeping me on my toes.
As of today, her favorite things to do at home include removing everything from the bottom of my bookshelf, ripping up magazines and mail, playing in the dog’s bowls, pulling on curtains and tugging on cords.
Toys are SO yesterday!
