Baby Milestones

Two Baby Milestones

Baby Wiggle Monster progressed past two baby milestones in the last 24 hours. Yesterday, she went from laying on her tummy to sitting up - on her own. This morning, she crawled forward a couple of inches.

Milestones are funny things, because really development is so incremental.

Take crawling:

First she pushes up on her hands on her tummy.
Then she holds herself up higher.
Then she rocks on her tummy.
Then she gets on her hands and knees.
Then she scoots backwards on her hands and knees.
Finally she goes forward.
    And of course she still has to figure out how to cover much distance.

Nevertheless, the time is coming soon, when she will crawl all over the place and get into everything. So amazing.
