Day 258 | New Passion: Climbing Stairs

Leave a comment

Mackenzie has a new passion: climbing stairs.

We went out to the park on Saturday while mommy was at the Alexandria Mission, and more than anything else, MV wanted to continually tackle stairs of any sort. First, she wanted me tl lead her over them in a standing position several times, and then she’d want to try them on her own, crawling.

As anyone who was then at the Dianetics Anniversary event at the Scientology Church in Washington DC can attest, Mackenzie was then, again, scaling the stairs non-stop until she ran out of gas. 🙂

It was this daddy’s dream come true yesterday.

I’ve had this idea since we found out Mackenzie was a girl that I’d be some day able to teach her how to play soccer.

Maybe 8 months old is a little early to be learning, but yesterday afternoon we were out in the back yard and decided to revel in the newly-mowed grass by kicking the soccer ball around. I was holding Mackenzie during the ordeal, and every time I trapped or kick the ball she just squealed with laughter and recognition.

It was almost a, “Dad I was hoping you guys would let me play soccer sometime!!”

Of course, when we let her down on the ground, she went for the ball and knew just what to do. 🙂
