Another Exciting Milestone - Stair Climbing

She crawled up the stairs yesterday! In our basement there is a hallway with our bedroom at one end and the staircase at the other. She has been hanging out at the bottom of the stairs a lot lately.

Well, yesterday I was in the bedroom and she was playing with toys at the bottom step. I would peer down the hallway to check on her; I could see her legs at the bottom of the stairs. At one point, she started to make quite a fuss. I looked down the hallway and there were no legs! I ran down the hallway to find her on all fours on the first stair; she looked so darn cute! I cheered for her and she laughed. I sat back as she continued her way up. She made it up three stairs!

Today, Grammy came over so I had to show her. My sister came home early (we live with my sister) so I had to show her too. It's like she's at an excercise class with all the stair repitions we're making her do! She is so iddy biddy and to see her tiny body moving up the huge staircase just looks unnatural!

The Sun Is Here!


The sun is here and we have been spending so much time at the beach! Our record so far is five days in a row! We go with Grammy (my mom). We have our shady spot that we can always be found at. As the day goes on the shade recedes and we just move our blanket back to follow it. When all the shade is gone, then it's time to go home.
