Today’s Walk

Ah music to my ears! As I paused on our walk this afternoon to snap a photo of an unusual flower, Bella exclaimed: “I hear a cricket. Chirp, chirp, chirp.” Indeed there was a cricket chirping nearby. Thank you, Eric Carle and The Very Quiet Cricket, my daughter just made her first insect identification. I am so proud.

Also on today’s walk I helped Isabella to collect her first bucket of acorns. I’d realized while reading Pooh stories that she didn’t know what Piglet’s “haycorns” were, so I located an oak tree and within a minute had found a dozen little brown-capped nuts. She was so pleased she carried them around in her bucket and ran to show them to her daddy when he came home.

    She still doesn’t sit up for more than a few seconds before slouching over; but she is getting more poised and balanced.
