around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
we keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...:

to say that my little tiny is fearless is an

for instance,
today we were at my parent's house.
nora runs like crazy around there.
she know all the in's & out's.

her latest ventures are in the backyard.
my parent's backyard has a couple of retaining walls.
nora likes to throw rocks & dirt from the top.

i was sitting on the couch feeding baby kayl.
my mom had her eye on my little tiny through the window
& i would occasionally see her run by.

nora went to the top of the retaining wall
threw some dirt & rocks.
yelled something at the dogs in her language
got a certain look on her face.

my mom & i looked at each other....
"do you think she is going to jump?"

just as quick as the words left my mouth,
my little tiny leapt from the wall...
{its about a 3 foot jump}
we were shocked.

she was completely fine
{once i knew she was okay, i laughed so hard i cried}

in fact,
i would go so far to say that she throughly enjoyed herself.
my fearless little tiny.

& curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

I'm with Jessie - I'm glad my little isn't the only fearless one out there. We have orange trees and avocado trees in our yard that have low branches. When she was sixteen and seventeen months old, she would climb up the branches slowly but surely until she reached several feet into the air. I thought I might die of a heart attack then, but now that she's older, she likes to climb up the branches and then STAND UP and tap the branches with her feet.

I think fearless kids are out to kill us moms. That's the only explanation.
