A few weeks ago Connor started scooting, and sometimes scooting with so much purpose that he managed to get himself from one place to another. Then suddenly a couple of weeks ago, that scooting shifted to hands and knees in front of one another, and then there he was crawling his way across the floor. Now he speeds through rooms like he’s been doing this forever, and he’s pulling himself up on furniture and toys, and we cheer him on. “Go for it, Connor, you got this!”
There’s something so satisfying for me to watch my children grow and learn, develop and transform. I love the fearlessness that children have. I love that their courage is so raw, because they don’t know that they should be afraid. I love supporting their desire to explore and helping them do it safely. I love witnessing them take on new challenges and discover their limits and their strengths.
