The moment Harper picked up her stuffed blue cat and started carrying it around by the neck, I knew toddlerhood had begun.  For me it was such an iconic moment, she’s a little kid now!

Jonah and I have been having a lot of fun giving her more room to explore and learn on her own.  Instead of putting her in the stroller right away on our walks, we let her walk up the street holding our hand.  The toddler gates have gone up and she can cruise around the living room on her own.  Some of the best moments these days have been on our porch, pointing at all the birds in the slough and playing with bubbles.


She looks at the world with awe and curiosity.  We could all use a little more of that in our daily lives.

  2. What a nice post! I love the photos too. When Harper is in town, she might just be old enough for Omsi!
