julia’s toddlerhood: any day now

Last week she figured out how to stand on her own. She lines up her lovely fat thighs under her center of gravity, then very deliberately lets go of the sofa or whatever else she is using as her prop. Last night was the best yet. She released the arm of the Poang and wobbled on her feet for almost a minute, trying to will her back foot up so she could take a step towards her daddy.

Jeremy held his breath, I held my breath, the Milky Way held its breath; then with a smile like the light of ten thousand suns she folded back onto her round bottom.

How we cheered!
