The morning Chase turned 14-months-old, she woke up at 7 a.m. She opened her bedroom door, walked down the hall to our bedroom, opened our bedroom door - and then made her way over to our bed.
Hubs and I were both surprised and delighted to see her.
Chase acted like it was no big deal.
Only the day before, Chase had showed me that if she stood on her little tippy toes and stretched each finger up, up, up - one could eventually catch the nob. I was so happy and so excited for her - and then suddenly so worried about what this new achievement actually means for me (in the wild world of baby proofing).
Chase's latest achievement struck me as particularly interesting because most children at this age are (1) still in cribs or (2) too short to reach the door nob.
I think I've got about a month before I have to worry about the front door ...
