Learning to drive

I got a preview of what it will be like in 15 years, teaching Sara Beth how to drive.  She discovered that she can push around her little buggy while on her knees.  A big grin would be plastered across her face as she careened into the furniture.  Any attempt to help her avoid obstacles was met with the unhappy cries of the pre-toddler.  She was perfectly happy to push her toy sideways into the various obstacles, and didn't want anyone suggesting any alternatives.

It didn't take her more than a day to realize that she could also do this standing up.  She now walks around for a little while.  Then, once she stumbles, she switches back to "knee mode" and continues.  It was very impressive how quickly she picked up on the whole walking thing.  We'll now have to see how long it takes her to switch to walking without training wheels.

In an interesting development this afternoon, Heather found Sara Beth rummaging through her toy purse.  She carefully selected her cell phone and cash and crawled over to her buggy for an afternoon on the town.

On a only slightly related note, I wanted to wish Heather a happy anniversary.  It has been the 7 greatest years of my life.  And without you, having a baby would be considerably more difficult.  Thank you.

The cell phone and cash thing is too cute. She's all girl, all right!

And I love the anniversary nod. :)
