the idea that maya is asserting herself by pulling up on the furniture is very liberating. many people might not realize how tiring it can get to have to pick up and carry a toddler everywhere. when i see other kids i know turn 1 and begin to walk, i just say to myself, "be patient, this will happen soon".
for a 19 + month old she is doing really well, i think. i can see that she is getting more adventurous and daring day by day. she is pushing herself and in a way she is fearless. i love it when she tries to climb over me or into the bouncy house at gym class. it's just too cute.
i can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's looking pretty bright!
