Today Rachel is 13 months old. To mark this important day, Rachel has taken walking to a whole new level. She took her first step two weeks before her birthday, but has not really expressed any interest in developing that talent. Yesterday, however, Rachel began walking more, of her own free will. She used to do it only when she was enticed with something, but now walking seems to be its own reward.
I also discovered last Friday that Rachel has her first baby molar (upper left). By the time I noticed, it was already pretty well erupted. Like it had been there for a couple of weeks. Hmm, seems to me that a couple of weeks ago I was getting overwhelmed with Rachel’s temper tantrums. Could there be a connection? Sorry sweetie.
I also think that Rachel is starting to shift to just one nap a day. I don’t know if I am happy or sad about that. I guess I can get used to that too.
