Well, it was bound to happen…sooner or later, we knew it would and it would mean changes.
Just let that sink in.
Yeah. I know. A crawler. Babyproofing. More vacuuming. More discipline. (sigh)
That girl…everybody around her has been saying for weeks that she wouldn’t crawl and she would go straight to walking. She’s been getting progressively better at cruising and today she was all over the place. But yeah, she probably decided to crawl just to prove us wrong.
Yesterday she moved a couple of inches and we thought…”whoa, no way.” Today, she was crawling as far as she needed to get to what she wanted.
And because that wouldn’t be enough of a big deal she also decided to pull up by herself today. She’s still wobbly and she can’t do it on everything yet – it has to be just the right height – but she’s got the technique down.
But, although she can crawl, she still gets frustrated when she’s sitting down because she wants to stand (and can’t quiiiite do it all the time). She will spend hours standing and cruising along every piece of furniture in the living room.
And I bet she is, too. Crawling and pulling up all in one day. She should sleep well, right?
