she walks.

When Ocean was almost a year old, I politely asked him to start sleeping through the night. As of that night, he complied.

So on Tuesday morning I casually brought up the issue of mobility with my 11 month old.
"Iris," I said, "will you please start walking today?"

Not 5 minutes later I was cutting up Ocean's breakfast when I heard a squeal of pure glee. I looked up to see Iris running across the room towards me. It took me about 15 mintues to get the camera; somewhere along the way she lost her pants and a sock, but she never lost the delight. See?

What a great listener! Awesome!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I too really loved what you had to say on Thrifty Mama's blog. The Thrifty Mama is actually a dear friend of mine. She and I don't see all the issues from the same angle, and I think that enriches our friendship.

By the way, you have a beautiful family!

Look at her! What a doll. And you must have some kind of serious mama mojo to get your kids to meet these milestones by asking them!
