A few days ago, I wanted to write a big post about how good River is getting at walking but I didn’t get around to it. Now, unfortunately, River isn’t walking at all, because she broke her leg. We’re not quite sure how she did it (I was only ten feet away but was looking in the other direction), but the leading theory is that she was climbing on one of the kitchen chairs and fell. It’s not a bad break and should heal very nicely.
As you can see from the picture, she’s doing just fine, but she does have a huge blue cast on her leg. She can crawl in a very awkward-looking fashion, but she’ll have to take a short hiatus in her walking practice until the cast comes off in four weeks.
