I’m a new mom, so you’ll have to forgive my delight in my own child…but those of you who know me, know that she was quite a task to get. And every day I find her more and more amazing. At almost 15 months, she is still not walking, but she is quite the climber. And people are always commenting on how quickly she crawls.
Today I let Caitlyn happily tear up catalogs for a half hour and watched with delight as she took one long skinny strip torn from a JCrew catalog and examined it. It was a beautiful piece torn from the middle of a huge stack of soft sweaters in rainbow colors. It was the one piece of paper that she tore that inspired me. And apparently, it inspired her. It was the first one that she tried to “wear”…first around her neck and then she tried to push it onto the front of her shirt. I told her that she had very good taste in paper. LOL.
And then I found a photo of me with my older brothers when I’m around 20 months old. Good to know that my hair was just as crazy!
And yes, that is a green-carpeted wall behind my brother and I. LOL. Gotta love the decor. That was ’81.
