Project 52 – A portrait(s) of my child once a week, every week in 2014.
Week 50: Glow
I took a picture similar to this last week when Lucy saw the tree lit up for the first time, but the difference in this one, is that the silly little girl is STANDING. Her one hand is barely touching the tree (for “stability”) We all know she can do it, but she’s so stubborn it has felt like she’s never actually going to walk. Then all of a sudden there she is, scooting around the Christmas tree (and not really holding on to anything) like its no big deal. I wouldn’t count these as first steps really, but dang it she’s so close! I keep telling her that by Christmas day she better be walking.
She loves the tree and so far has only touched the presents once. I told her “no” very sternly and she hasn’t even glanced at them a second time. I’m honestly a little surprised, given her history with our bookshelf, but I’m relieved too.
Only two more weeks left of this project! How is that possible?!
