Yes that’s what I said, she’s crawling. Well, technically it’s not really crawling, more like slithering. She’s managed to discover that she can push with her feet and slide around on her belly. She is getting ready to crawl properly though. She started becoming mobile with a backward movement. Now she gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth and sometimes moves an arm or a leg but hasn’t quite figured out how to move them together to propel herself forward. I’m sure she’ll catch on soon and then – watch out! Baby’s on the move.
It makes my heart swell with joy for the tiny person she is growing into and ache for my newborn baby and each day that has already passed us by. She’s growing so fast.
My little one is 7 months old already. She got her two front teeth at the end of May. You can see her learning and changing every day. She looks at me when I call her name. As I type this she’s rolling and sliding around on the play mat playing with some of her toys. I just watched her **almost** sit up on her own. She smiles when she sees me and she’s started reaching for me when someone else is holding her. It’s amazing and I’m so thankful for this time with her.
