yesterday marked a milestone in the little man's life. even though walking alone to different playgrounds, parks and to run errands has become a part of this day-to-day life, yesterday we set off to our (rather) long (for 2-year-old steps, at least) walk to the train station to make the weekly ride to my parents' house - without mama pushing the (empty) stroller, "just in case".
but most of the time, my little one sets the pace. he decides which route to take, where to stop and watch, which scenes to take in more intently, which puddles to walk through (or where to stop and realize that aforementioned puddles have completely vanished or turned into ice by now).
my child, you amaze me each and every day. and you teach me to treat each day with wonder and amazement.
