For me one of the best things about being a mum is enjoying the simple things. Ordinary moments that will soon be forgotten, as our children develop at a frightening pace. My favourite thing at the moment is watching Baby stand ‘hands-free’. Over the last couple of weeks Baby’s confidence has started to grow. When she has been cruising round the furniture, she will take a hand off here and there. This progressed recently, to her taking both hands off her support. It is adorable, almost like she has heard a drumroll. She pauses, focuses, lets go and then is ecstatic when she manages a couple of seconds standing on her own.
I’m sure she will soon be zooming about, running rings round us and this stage will be a distant memory. So I have immortalised it here, so we can remember how much joy she found in the process of learning to stand on her own two feet.
