Elora can jump. She has been practicing so much that she is quite the expert.
I love it when toddlers start learning to jump. It looks like it is quite challenging at first: the heaves and hos that go into the process! It’s endearing. As I hold her hand and take her for little strolls, she jumps along beside me. Her yellow bumblebee boots make a clomping sound beneath her and her breaths are loud as she launches herself into the air and falls back down to earth with pride.
Whilst bbqing dinner the other day, Monte and I were entertained by little Elora Jane as she worked on her jumping skills.
I think there’s a message for all of us here. With a lot of enthusiasm and a bit of dedication, practicing on the thing we love will make us experts. And we will love it even more.
Do you like her cardigan? I knitted it for her when she was a little baby. She demanded to wear it again, even though it is a bit small now. Perhaps I need to knit her a new one. It is made from bamboo yarn and is really soft.
