"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?


  1. How exciting! She's growing so fast!

  2. And she has already tried to climb the baby gate. Sheesh!

  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!

  4. Big girl! what a sweet face :)
