One of my all time favourite quotes is by Richard Bach:
“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true.
You may have to work for it, however.”
My little Emma is the perfect example of persistence. She tries every day to stand up and run. Right after her brother Niklas. At the beginning she could hardly raise her head from her bed or rocking chair. Now, mere five months old, she is almost jumping off her chair. I am sure that in a few months time she will be crawling behind Niklas. 🙂
Pictures: (1 and 2) my persistent baby attempting a jump off her chair and not understanding why it does not work and (3) managing to the other end of her bed to reach for toys, and all this by constant practicing.
