She walks! Mostly!

On her 15-month-birthday, Bjorn and I watched her walk six or seven steps, stop to look at something and reload, and then walk four or five more steps. That's walking, right? We were so proud we both sort of teared up. Precious darling angel baby is now a walker. Well, some of the time. When she feels like it.

Bjorn is out of town again tonight. I sure hope he lands some of these deals. Fortunately, Jennifer is coming by to help. It's very convenient with her eight minute commute. Plus, it's nice catching up with her and hearing what's going on. It's hard to believe the biggest of the angel babies (Jennifer) starts her first real job on Monday after moving into her first real apartment last week. And to think I knew her when.

It's funny, Bjorn and I were dating back when I was her age. In retrospect, I can only imagine what the other parents at the soccer and basketball games must have thought of me barely in my 20s standing on the sidelines with a bunch of parents in their 40s. Bjorn was young for the crowd in his early 30s, but they probably didn't know that. I imagine I really did look like some chippie/trophy wife.

I am in need of a vacation and this 90 degree heat has me dreaming of the beach. If you have ideas for beach spots on the east coast, let me know.


  1. You still look like a trophy wife! and that is about when Mary started walking, it was within a couple of days before or after (already forgotten exact- BAD mommie) her 15 month birthday. Congratulations love girl!

  2. Chippie/trophy wife? Now that one made me laugh!!

  3. Walking! So cute. :)

    It probably didn't help that you were always wearing microskirts and mid-thigh length boots.

    Oh, it helped! Bjorn

  6. Well, quick grab the camera and make a little baby walk movie clip to post on your blog. Those first steps are so precious you've got to save them for her to see later in life. Plus I want to see them right now!
