A Peace Offering

Ever since Julia began pulling herself up she has become a mobile terror, though an unbearably cute one. Here she is on her first unauthorized, and self-propelled, climb up the stairs. That is my hand reaching for the pacifier that Julia is holding out as a peace offering (she knew she was being naughty).

As you can see, she made it up four steps. She would have gone higher had we let her, provided she did not tumble down - she hasn't caught on to the whole gravity thing.

Why don't kids learn the rules before they gain the ability? It seems we are all destined to spend some time in the school of hard knocks.

That's right, Julia! Fight the power! I, too, have decided that gravity is beneath me (so to speak). Don't let the mab keep you down!

Max said...

Man, I mean, not mab. I can't type or spell that well, yet. I'm just a little baby, for goodness' sake!

Aha! So, it is Max who is encouraging such miscreance - is that a word?

Chelsa said...

it's a word as much as 'mab' is
