Unstable

My baby is not on her feet yet, but already she knows instability. On hands and knees. Rock, rock, rock. Slide a knee. Lift a hand. Oomph – bellyflop. Up again. Pitch forward. Faceplant. Waaaaaa…. But whether it’s learning how to crawl or walk, or simply how to keep from falling, we’ve all been there…Continue reading “Unstable”

Here are a few of our simple joys from the last few weeks… •Library books – Raelynn loves going to the library.
