Between 10 1/2 and 11 months, you found out you can cruise around the coffee table, and I would chase you! You could muster enough strength to go around no more than four times. Then, you'd wait for me to catch you, scoop you up and give your all the hugs and kisses you could handle.
Waiving was exciting for you. You seemed so amazed that others would respond with a similar gesture, as you took your little hand and moved it slowly and sloppily from side-to-side in a semi-circular motion.
I was equally amazed to watch you stand in the kitchen and pull out any thing that was in the lower door. Both your mom and I would return the contents only to have you empty the door over and over again.
The joy continues, moment by moment...
