Did I mention that she’s started crawling? No longer belly-flopping. Honest-to-gosh hands-and-knees full-on crawling. When she sees something that interests her, and she heads for it at full speed, she’s so pleased that she starts laughing out loud. It’s really something.

    Now you’re in for it. I predict you will spend the next 2-3 years at any gathering, eyes to the ground, weaving in and out of people, trying to keep her in your sights, making sure she doesn’t kill herself.


    It’s a truly exciting time. Your blog helps makes it all so special. It won’t be long before the little one is walking, but I doubt very much if she’ll beat her father’s age for those precious first steps. Bart was just 10 months when he started walking. I will never forget it. It was at our little rented house in Norman, Oklahoma, a few blocks from the OU campus when I was a graduate student there.

    Bart’s mother was holding him upright between her knees. I held out my arms and Bart came unsteadily forward, wobbly but determined. He tottered four or five steps into my arms. We both laughed. What a proud moment for the three of us!

    I have been following your family’s journey for a while. When I read this entry tears sprang to my eyes. I don’t know why. What a darling child. And I loved Grandpa Ray’s memories.
