She's walking!

A week shy of her 11th month, my little Sage took her first unassisted steps (she was previously cruising from one item of furniture to another). I had just arrived home from work and she stood up, walked over and literally fell into my arms. And yes, of course I was in tears. I'm so proud.

Last night, she picked up our hardbound copy of Ursula Le Guin's The Other Wind and passed it to me (perhaps she sensed that I had overlooked the book in my reading list). Nikki and I hope that, with our reading to her and surrounding her with books, she'll acquire a love for books too.

Bookshopping with my daughter in the future? Ah, that would be wonderful.
