I wrote this back in October 2012. Sometimes it takes me a while to get things posted onto the blog.
I remember when Mila was in her early weeks or months of life when my husband made the comment, “I can’t wait for Mila to walk and talk”, to which I quickly replied, “why, so she never slows down and won’t shut up?” It was a joke for a while.
I can understand where he was coming from — you want your baby to be able to communicate with you and verbalize when something is wrong. Was he really in such a rush to change our conversations into a spelling bee? Between the both of us, we won’t know what the heck the other is saying, (we’re both not-so-great spellers)!

Our little family was gathered at a friend’s new house, sitting in her backyard, chatting. Mila wanted down, and figuring there wasn’t anything she could really hurt herself on or get into, I let her go.
I guess the grass was fairly new to her or maybe this was different from what we had at home. We couldn’t help but laugh as we watched her walk/crawl/something around the backyard. She wouldn’t put her knees down on the grass and instead crawled around on her hands and feet with her legs slightly bent. It was a sight to be seen!
11 months, 9 days
This was also the day Dan came up with the idea of mass producing and selling baby knee pads, (then babies could crawl ANYWHERE, yay!). I don’t know what he’s thinking most times.
