Miss Joy turned six months old a week or two ago. She learned to crawl about that time, and she is moving very fast now. She pulls herself up to anything that doesn’t move under her, and gets very frustrated when we block her from such wonderful playgrounds as the basket of newspapers we keep in the living room for fire starter! She loves to play outside in the grass, and in our bedroom, much better than in the living room—although the kitchen is almost as good as outside. She’s so tiny she can easily sit up underneath a chair.
One afternoon when Miss Joy was a bit grumpy I put her in a tub with water in the kitchen. She played in the water for awhile, and then stood up and found the cabbage I had nearby! She was delighted that she could reach across and taste the cabbage!
