"Everywhere in nature we are taught the lessons of patience and waiting. We want things a long time before we get them, and the fact that we wanted them a long time makes them all the more precious when they come." Joseph F. Smith
The first attempt at climbing on the stool failed when her feet slipped off. Elayna was not deterred. She tried again and stayed on the stool. She even tried to reach up and touch the counter top. She is daring. She had this proud look of accomplishment on her face. This made me smile. Now if she could be daring and try walking.....I can wait. No rush.
This week she climbed onto the couch. Lilia had the pillows on the floor and Elayna used them to her advantage and climbed up on to the couch. She loves to climb the stairs.
