Steps

She turned herself around, let go of the wall, and took two steps into the middle of the room. And then she just stood there, prairie-dogging for a good 15 seconds, before dropping down and crawling over to me with the biggest grin on her face.

And then I cried.

Don't you hate that moment, and love it at the same time.

There is a drinking fountain at one of the play areas we go to, and it has a stool underneath it. Yesterday Ellie drank from the fountain all by herself for the first time. She was on her tippy toes on the stool and got herself all wet, but she did it.

I cried too.

I'm sure it's very bittersweet.. I'm looking forward to the day with dread.
