Yesterday was Rachel’s 16 month birthday. It was pretty much uneventful. She spent the day hanging out in Scout’s kennel reading the Reader’s Digest, or with Scout.
Today was slightly more eventful. Rachel had a momentous event. She walked down the stairs facing forward. She was holding my hand with one of her hands, and the railing supports with the other, but it was the first time she had ever descended forward. I was surprised because it was a set of stairs she never goes down by herself. It is the stairs going outside into the back yard. In the past I have always carried her down, but today she was very grown up about it.
