Crawl

"Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. " -Zora Neale Hurston

And she's off!

My Maeve is crawling now.

It started yesterday.  I could tell she was close, so I sat with her on the floor awhile, and held out my hands to her, and sure enough, she came barreling at me, clumsily but excited.  I clapped and cheered and told her what  a big girl she is.

DH promptly put up the baby gate so she can't get to the Christmas tree, and because she's started pulling herself up, too, (it was a big day yesterday) we lowered her crib mattress.  I'm now officially a baby-chasing Momma, which will no doubt keep me very busy.

I'm so proud of her.

Who couldn't love this face?

  3. Same with Ryan! He had been scooting since 5 months, and then Saturday night he started crawling. Exactly on time with your little girl. Next up is walking!
