Dear Annie

Today, you stood up against our patio door. As usual, you spread your legs apart and lay your hands on the door. Then, remarkably, while staring at your hands, you slowly moved them off of the door, bent your knees slightly, held the pose for 30 seconds, then gracefully replaced your hands on the door to steady yourself. Pleased with yourself, you repeated this again, with a huge smile. How brave! I can't even imagine how scary it must be to let go like that without ever having stood without support. What a risk you took. I am so proud of you. Love, Mama
