Standing Around (that is, when I can hang on to the piano)
Keenan has been wanting to crawl for at least six weeks now. Yesterday, I was on the phone with one of my friends and former co-workers while I was watching Keenan play. It took me a moment to register that he had just taken four crawling steps. I shouted excitedly into Maja's ear "he's crawling, he's crawling." She wisely advised me to hang up and get the momentous occasion on videotape. I followed her suggestion but there was no repeat performance.
This little piano has been one of Sophia's favorite toys for the past year. We have tried to get Keenan interested in it, and even put him on our laps so he could explore the keys, but he was having none of it.
May 15, 2006, we first met and held Sophia. January 15, 2007, we first met and held Keenan. Happy Gotcha Day to both of our children, you are the best things that ever happened to us.
