So Many Hands To Hold

so many hands..

It must be easy to try something new when you have so many to cheer you on and catch you if you fall. Lyra made her walking debut last weekend among lots of cousins and many adoring fans at the aquarium we were visiting. She was in complete joy of herself and her new skill.

It's all she knows really. She smiles, everyone cheers. She laughs, everyone cheers. She claps, everyone cheers. She stands, everyone cheers. She takes a step, the crowd goes wild. She is the delight of our family in a way I can't quite explain, just by breathing. I think this should be the life of all babies, all people really.

In two more seconds, she will decide it is time to get into everything and cause new havoc but today she is walking on top of the world.

Think again. Salt is an essential element in the diet of humans, animals, and even of many plants. It is one of the most effective and most widely-used food (and Egyptian mummy) preservative. Its industrial, medical and other uses are almost without number. It has even been the subject of the subject of music, art, and poetry; and is viewed with great historical interest all around the world.

Hooray for Lyra!

I think that the cheers are the trade-offs younger siblings get. They might not get one-on-one time. They might not get detailed and rigorous entries in their baby books. But they have so many fans, it's truly fabulous.
