May 15th: Fun Stuff

It was a beautiful day here in the Garden State! A perfect day to go outside and enjoy the neighborhood.

While we were out and about, we met our neighbors from across the street, Mariella and her son, Lucas. Lucas is about 15 months and his mom and grandmother cannot wait for him to walk. In fact, his grandmother has been working with him hoping to see him take his first steps before she has to leave on Saturday.

Willow took her first steps a couple of weeks ago and is still working on doing it on her own. She may one or two steps as she did today. When Lucas saw how brave she was as trying to walk, it gave him the courage to try too. And so, Lucas took his first steps in our driveway!

Mariella was so excited and proud! And so was I. It is pretty neat to see your child try to imitate the the things you do but to have another child imitate what she can do?! Well, it really gives your confidence as a parent a big boost!

We have known almost from the beginning that Willow has a real passion for music. What we did not realize was just how discerning her taste in music is. As you can see from the video, she carefully chooses just the right music to accompany her dinner!

(And she has become pretty good at feeding herself, don't you think?!)
