On Tuesday, October 20, 2009, my baby girl crawled for the first time. I was sitting in front of a mirror in my bedroom, drying my hair when she crawled to the cell phone I had slid across the floor to bait her. I was watching her like a hawk because she'd been getting close for days. She did four little crawling steps toward my bedroom door. The sound of her little knees pounding the carpet is fresh in my mind.
I didn't have the camera ready when she was making her first strides, but here we were trying to repeat it.
It amazes me that at only 8 months she already seeks out the things that aren't brightly colored plastic, i.e. the things she's not supposed to have.
I lost several cell phones to Jackson's drool and don't plan on repeating that. But I had to give her a moment of victory.
If I'm remembering correctly, Jackson first crawled to a remote control. Girl to the phone, boy to the remote. Sounds about right.
Jackson crawled at 8 months and 14 days.
Annabeth crawled at 8 months and 17 days. Pretty close, I'd say!
I'm so proud of you, Annabeth!
