Gracelyn goes vertical

To the sober person adventurous conduct often seems insanity.
~Georg Simmel

On May 11, just days after her 8 month birthday, Gracelyn decided she needed to add a new skill to her repertoire — stair climbing. She scaled the 14 steps of our home staircase with determination and strength. Since then she’s gotten faster and is climbing with as much joy as grit. Below is a video of her third climb.

    She is so precious and Shonnie took the words out of my mouth ” amazing ” !!! Gracelyn is full of curiosity and love of life and as someone recently posted either here or on FaceBook – “it is because both of you give her such a calm and safe environment” in which to explore and learn ! Love all three of you …
