OF COURSE, there will be many more pictures, for your viewing pleasure, posted soon, since an average of 235 images of these blessed events were captured.
Since having Madalyn, I know the thrill that comes with watching your child achieve a new skill. The smugness that accompanies reading What To Expect The First Year and realizing most babies aren't doing that by this age.
But I realize this feeling is universal. There is a certain danger, I believe, with placing too high of expectations on a developing, learning, imagining, wandering, giggling little creature.
SO when Madalyn completed Microfish Two and rode her first horse like-she'd-been-doing-it-all-her-life in a single week, I never made any Olympic comparisons, nor did I envision lessons at smelly horse stalls or the echo of an empty university pool.
She is, after all, only two.
