baby steps

Often when we enter new territory or begin big changes, we are advised to remember to take baby steps. For the past two days, I have studied the concept of baby steps with an expert: Abby is 14.5 months old. Here's what she has taught me so far:

1. Steps are only one way of getting around; climbing, crawling and holding up your arms for a lift all work fine too.

2. Baby steps are a little wobbly. It helps to cushion your bottom so you can giggle when you fall.

3. It's more fun to take steps with a hand to hold (and you move faster).

4. Jumping up and down doesn't move you very far (except onto your well-padded bottom).

5. Babies take steps with wild eyes and fearless hearts; a giant leap may become possible at any time.
