Rachel is just reaching one developmental milestone after another, and I can’t keep up! Last Friday she pulled herself to her feet (using me for support). We were outside in the grass, and I was laying down. She crawled over to me, and was climbing over me, when all of the sudden she was standing up! She duplicated her feat yesterday when we were at great-grandma’s house, but I admit that I rolled a little to help her. This morning she got to her feet using the couch for support. This time I was free to snap a picture (or two).
Last Saturday we had a little (failed) Triple Crown party. (Meaning failed Triple Crown, not failed party.) Gary, a.k.a. the mad scientist, made homemade root beer. Mmmmm!
Big Brown didn’t win, but it was fun to hang out with friends and family.
The root beer was the highlight of the party.
After almost everyone left Jeff and I played croquet with his mom and dad. We played two times, and I came in 3rd and 4th out of four. I’m not very good at croquet, even with home court advantage!
