Stand up and walk!

My happiness... to see my baby getting herself ready to face and walk with the world. 

We will always be at your side:) cheering you up every time you fall...
  When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, 
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, 
When the funds are low and the debts are high, 
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, 
When care is pressing you down a bit, 
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, 
As every one of us sometimes learns, 
And many a failure turns about, 
When he might have won had he stuck it out; 
Don't give up though the pace seems slow-- 
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than, 
It seems to a faint and faltering man, 
Often the struggler has given up, 
When he might have captured the victor's cup, 
And he learned too late when the night slipped down, 
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out-- 
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, 

And you never can tell how close you are, 
It may be near when it seems so far, 
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-- 
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Dear Ivy,

you are growing so fast! Look at you...
I hope someday (when tough days are already part of you life) Remember this poem and remember these days--when learning to stand up is the hardest thing to do, these days when falling down over and over won't stop you to learn. Stay brave! and never quit...because you are strong from the very start, and you will always be!

Moments like this one... is a perfect Mommy Moments for me
