Last night, for the first time, June stood up in her playpen. Not that her standing is a new thing, I just hadn't ever seen her do it in the playpen, mostly because we rarely use it. Despite all that, it was impressive. It made me realize that she has no problem standing anymore, and that standing without support will probably happen soon. [The hard part is with each gain on her part is another level of child-proofing that must be done ASAP. Maybe it will help me develop a recognizable form of organization!]
Life with June is full of firsts, and I only wish I had begun this blog sooner so that I could have captured them all more completely.
Over this past weekend we had another first: a play date. Let me just say, it IS all about the mothers at this point, and it is a great thing. New motherhood can be so very isolating. We mothers need to unite just for sanity. [Insert fantasy here about conflict-free communal home life where we got all the help we ever wanted and were never criticized.... AHhhh. Lovely.] Anyway, June's play date with Marshall, or rather mine with Melissa, was *fantastic.* Thanks Melissa. Let's have another play date soon.
