BabyHope is mobile. She’s been crawling like mad for nearly two weeks. She gets faster each day.

And more dangerous. She’s also pulling up to standing on anything that looks remotely stationary. You know, like cats. Or things with wheels. When she is successful, she looks around to see who is watching with the biggest grin you can imagine.

It’s amazing to watch. It’s also a little tiring. I’ve gone from being able to sit her somewhere while I fold laundry or start dinner to not being able to turn my back for a moment.

And it’s not anything “babyproofing” would fix. She’s just dangerous – trying to lick the refrigerator while she pulls up on it means she’s going to whack her head.

So the laundry sits. And we’ve been eating cereal for dinner.

Because what matters is watching this, experiencing this. Because this could be our only chance.
