I don’t know why the sight of you climbing a tree for the first time, caused me to pause for a moment but it did. You climb all of the time inside our house but for some reason this was different. I’ve never seen your sisters climb a tree and there you were just a week after your second birthday, giving it all you had. You were so excited about this new challenge and I just sat and watched you for the longest time before running to get the camera. I think this may have been a sign of passage because you were doing what I always saw big boys doing at the park. You ARE a big boy now and I honestly don’t think I realized it until this moment in time. Quinn, you will have many trees to climb as you continue on your journey and I will always be there to catch you if you fall...no matter what. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed the first two years of your journey. You have just been the icing on the cake for me. You have filled my world and I simply adore you little buddy!
