New Frontiers

Desmond took his first few steps on Tuesday. He surprised me by sliding off my lap and stumbling over to his crib to get Thing 2 and then walking back to me. He has also dramatically increased the number of face-plants he does each day. Good for our little adventurer.

Sometimes when it rains it sometimes pours developmentally speaking. As I was making lunch today I turned around and saw this:

He has never successfully climbed on top of the couch before. A whole new world of "no touch" has opened up.

In other news, Peter and I are off to Dallas this weekend to see Sonia and Ian get married. We are going ALONE(!!), while Larry and Stephanie watch Desmond. This week I turned to Peter and excitedly said, "I can't wait for the flight. Four hours of reading when I want to, lingering over my drink, napping or going to the bathroom when I want to! We could even be delayed and it's not that big of a deal." Ah, how parenthood changes your outlook on life.

Looks like we'll have our work cut out for us!!! I can't wait!

Enjoy your time without Desmond! It will give you some rest, and you will come back to him with more energy and patience. (Not that you need patience. I'm only speaking from MY experience, and it requires lots of it!)

You two have fun in the Lone Star State! (We're boasting some particularly great weather this week!)

Have fun in Texas, P&K! You will be ready to return and face the little challenger! Remember, Desmond is in the greatest hands in the world, his loving grandparents!

The worst that can happen to Desmond is he may actually miss Mom & Dad a little. This will be a wonderful experience for both Desmond and you.
