This day last year, she walkered her first steps.
I forget. I forget so often that only a year ago she was still my little lump. My sweet sugar lumpy KayTar. She wasn't speaking. She wasn't walking. She wasn't doing a multitude of other things both big and small that she can do today. Things we now take for granted. She was mostly silent, closed off, a quiet mystery we never thought we would unravel. The mystery is not solved, it might never be, but every day her life whispers to us new secrets. She gives us treasured moments we never dared to expect, and fills us with joy and wonder at our not so normal little girl, finally achieving the mundane, everyman milestones of childhood. She has come so far, my baby turned big girl who can do so much more than we ever thought possible.
