“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Milestone: Retta's First Steps!

As reported in my earlier post, Retta took her first steps on March 6th, and then yesterday she started taking 5 or 6 steps to actually resemble walking! She is quite proud of her new skill, and it's fun to watch her excitement when she manages to cover a bit of distance while being vertical. Here are my best attempts at capturing these firsts!

I think this was officially her 2nd step...didn't have my camera ready in time for the first one! That is a snail figurine in mouth, something she insists on carrying around lately, like a security blanket.

Tooling around with her walker

This is fun!!
