Amazing. Rachel is 11 months old today. It is hard to believe that time has flown so quickly. I have got to say that Rachel has been, and still is, a great joy in our lives. She is so sweet, so beautiful, and has a personality that doesn’t stop. The past 11 months have been quite a learning experience for me too. Who knew babies could be so much fun, so much work, so much joy, so much worry, all at the same time.
Rachel seems so close to walking. She has a little car that she can use to help her walk by herself. A couple of nights ago Rachel was pacing back and forth the basement floor. Space was limited. Just five or six steps got her across the room. She probably went back and forth at least 20 times.
This morning we walked up the sidewalk. She walked the entire distance width of our front yard, and about a quarter of the way back.
You might think I have an advantage because I see what she is doing now, but I have no idea how quickly kids progress from one phase to the next. So please vote.
