Because I hate that last negative post but needed to unload it–
Maxine has been really interested in playing babies–feeding them, making them jump (they use their heads to jump), making them cry etc. Grammy plays babies with her most often.
Today Grammy sat down near the babies and Maxine and I walked over (Maxine holding onto my fingers). I slipped my fingers out of Xiner’s hands and she just stood there (for the first time) like she’d been doing it always. She stood there for like ten seconds while my mom and I stared at her with dropped jaws. Then she, ever so slowly, lowered herself to the ground with complete control.
My girl is cautious. She almost never has an accident. She is so like Daddy in this way. And so unlike me. I went from crawling to running and crashing when I was nine months old and the rest of my life has pretty much followed suit. Daddy (I should call him Scott) is cautious about everything.
I love watching this little bubble bloom and grow….
