We took Lilah to the Rideau Canal today so she could try out her first pair of ice skates. I'm so proud of my girl, she loved every single second of it, falling down, getting up, walking around, getting her balance, slipping and sliding. One time she fell down and started making a snow angel - she is always the opportunist! And another time, after falling down, she looked up at me and said: "If you fall down too Mama, we might break the ice!" Heh! I can't say this often enough, how it makes my heart swell to see her love for life. How determined she is, how much she laughs and the fun we have together. I'm so very very blessed. I'm also a ridiculously biased Mama, because I think she's a complete natural on ice. And I have a feeling we're going to be slipping and sliding around the Rideau Canal quite often now! Thankfully it's just a skip and a hop up the street from our house.
