While we were on vacation recently I learned that my child is fearless. For all of her caution in the first year of her life she has learned to explore now with reckless abandon. When waves struck her in the face she just laughed and squealed. When she fell in the sand she giggled, picked up and went on. After she played on the steps in the pool she climbed out and ran straight for the edge to jump straight in. It was momma heart stopping.
She is climbing, running and exploring like I've never seen. It's exhausting, but exhilarating this new facet of her personality. And, I love it.
Stay wild. Stay fearless. Stay brave, baby girl. You make my heart so proud.
