There's no turning back now. This little girl has mastered sitting up on her own. In a few days, she can add crawling to her repertoire. While this didn't make today's headline news, it was celebrated and noticed by a very enthusiastic crowd.
When I look at this picture, I am reminded of her mother. I had no idea when she was that age the places she'd go nor her many accomplishments. Maybe that's a good thing. There's already so much pressure on young parents to "get it right".
I don't feel that angst as a grandmother. I see my role more as a cheerleader and confidante.
What traces of me and my mother and her mother are found in this little girl?
I want to know the memories you have of your grandmother and the influence she had on you.
