She's made it!

At one time or another as each of the children grew up and became more mobile they made the mountainous journey up the big steps from the office into the shop.  Yesterday Katie independently negotiated this tricky route and triumphantly made her way to what has always been a favourite spot with young children - watching the cars from the doorway!  Suddenly a whole new world has opened up to her - specifically a shopful of books ready and waiting to be pulled off the shelves.  It is a hard lesson to learn, but they all had to go through it - you can look at them but you can't grab them & slobber all over them!

How old? Today our Deborah (13 mo) has finally made it to independent walking after some weeks of a few steps here and there.

Now independent climbing is quite a different matter - she's been at that for many weeks!

Hello Peter - Congratulations to Deborah! I noticed on Rachel's blog that she has been a little climber for a while - that makes life hard work I'm sure! Katie is just 11 days younger than Deborah (she was born 24th - was Deborah the 13th?) but she has been a lot slower getting going. She is now happy climbing & cruising but not yet walking alone.
