It's hard to remember that Isabella is only two and a half, when she's doing a lot of grown up sort of things - copying EVERYTHING we say, putting on my head bands, taking care of Henry (her precious dog) the way I talk to her and the way I take care of Victoria. One challenge for Isabella is understanding how to be gentle with those who are smaller than her, like Victoria.
But the two of them seem to get along generally speaking. Victoria finds Isabella amusing much of the time. No really. Victoria will cackle and laugh joyously.
And today? Victoria stood up on her feet for the first time! She pulled up on a little table, and then she did the same thing with the recliner. A little motivation coupled with determination did the trick.
She's standing here in this picture, but it's hard to tell, since she's standing at an angle.
