I read about the concept of seasons in a few different books when Little Bit was just a little, tiny bit. The idea that each little thing only lasts a little while. You're overwhelmed by a stage of development, then *poof*, that one's gone and there's something new to figure out. Very, very true.
I get pretty sappy about Little Bit's growing up. It really is happening fast, and sometimes I feel like the days are flying by too fast...but this is a happy, happy day.
I took those safety clips off the kitchen cabinets. I probably could have done it earlier, especially since I taught her how to open them herself several months ago. Gone are the days when I have to open a cabinet a little, push down on a lever, then open it the rest of the way.
