Gaining Independence

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

For quite some time after my daughter's birth, I felt like she was an extension of myself- an extra limb, a part of me. As the months passed, slowly she began to develop into her own, and now she is an active and curious 9 month old eagerly crawling away from her momma and ready to explore the world. I am okay with this. To observe our surroundings through Ellie's eyes has been so rewarding, and Gymboree Play & Music has given us the chance to put the rest of our life on hold and to simply "be." As I saw my daughter confidently crawling through a tunnel last week in her Play and Learn 2 class, I knew that we were at the start of what will be a long-lasting relationship with Gymboree. She was so proud of herself, and I could not help but think about how far we have come in just 9 months.

My daughter. Is now crawling through tunnels. Look out world!
