B spent her 9-month birthday conquering some new frontiers. First, she hitched a ride with her buddy Austin in his bike trailer--together, the babies, Austin's mom (Jes) and I rode to a neighboring town and had some cold drinks and snacks and biked home.
Later, B decided to conquer her version of Longs Peak. With Kris spotting her, she climbed the entire flight of stairs to the second floor. She never once faltered, though she did have to stop to rest half way. Once she crested the summit, she giggled in delight and went straight to the bookshelf in our loft where she pulled down several mountaineering books within her reach. Next she'll be looking for sponsors.
After all was said and done, she was one tired baby and found a cozy place to rest.
