We're in trouble now...

Last week Grace was really wanting to crawl. She would get into the crawling position, rock back and forth, and then flop on her belly. She just couldn't quite figure out how to get her legs moving. Later this week she put it all together and is now making her way around the house. Jen caught one of her early crawls on camera for your viewing pleasure.





She is also now pulling herself into a standing position without our help. She used to pull herself up by grabbing our hands, now she just grabs onto the edge of a piece of furniture and hoists herself up. Kind of scary to see our baby standing there smirking at us.

It is kind of funny, Jen met with the Early Intervention people last week and two of the goals we wanted Grace to achieve were crawling and pulling herself to a standing position. She has conquered those tasks and she hasn't even had a therapy session yet. Glad we didn't set jogging as a goal.

such great progress from Gracie! she is already giving you so much to be proud of. (but I couldn't get the video to play - no longer available?) I loved seeing all 5 "little Regis girls" together again and am looking forward to more baby playdates! :)

GRIN!!! I love how sturdy and solid this kid is. Her pictures totally make me smile every time I stop by.

We were just commenting last night that we ought to invite our 11 month old niece over for some unlimited play time so we can see where our baby-proofing needs to be tightened up. Only 6-8 weeks to go for us, Lord willing!

Hey that's so wonderful! I'm glad to see she is crawling! Once they get going, the blossom and develop so quickly. It's almost a blur!
