As I was sitting there last week during dance waiting for my older girls, Meagan was doing her usual routine. (At dance class Meagan loves to scoot around greeting everyone and of course going up to each parent and saying hello). I was distracted by my conversation with a fellow parent when I happen to look down and see Meagan holding on to my legs - except she wasn't sitting on the floor like usual - she was standing between my legs! I couldn't believe it. Meagan had just pulled up to stand for the first time! The other champ parents who were there and know us so well were so excited as well! They clapped for Meagan and as I sat her back down on the floor, encouraged her to do it again. And she did.
As we enter Fall, the crispness of the air, the fresh winds and the colors that abound this time of year bring a fresh look on life and a new excitement. Likewise, we are excited for the changes Meagan is experiencing right now. I try to enjoy these as much as possible because seasons sometimes change suddenly, and I don't want to miss a moment of being thankful for all she has become.
