Alexandra has taken a step here and there, usually with a day or two in between, not showing much interest in the sport. Then today, she's decided that the effort is worth all the praise she receives.
The very sad thing is that I leave tomorrow for Canada for five days. I'll leave my baby. I'll come home to a toddler. (That is, unless Mike follows my explicit instructions to stifle her growth for the next five days, strapping her into a stroller or carrying her all day long.)
