And how she can now flip pages and examine small objects and terrorise the cats? That’s all happened this year, as well as so much more). But sometimes you have moments where you think, “Do I really want her to know this?” As she gets more and more mobile (and fast), that question comes up more and more.

. . . . . .

oh dear. . .
