it has only taken me 4 kids to anticipate this moment.
but, i am always floored the first time i walk into one of my children's room to see them sitting (or later standing) for the first time in their crib.
it makes them seem so big. so independent. so old.
i knew della was getting close to this for weeks now.
yesterday, i was in the kitchen when i glanced at the monitor and realized she was sitting in her crib.
my sweet baby!
i went up to get her and she was grinning from ear to ear. she was so very proud of herself.
and i was too.
