Yes, she is finally crawling at almost 8 months of age! She has been scooting a little and last week she started army crawling, but today, yes today she has crawled across the room. Look at her very focused...
She has come a long way now!
It is strange to me because this is the longest any of my children have taken to accomplish this skill. No, it is not her weight that holds her back (Grant was just as big and was crawling at 6 months and walking by 9!), it is her motivation. You can see here why she was so motivated... the cord! Talmage was playing with her and slowly dragging the cord just out of her reach. It definitely did the trick.
She is being happy here... waving her arms and making cute baby talk noises! I figured that if we used a cord, Mommy, or the computer she would figure it out. Those are her favorite things :). I think the baby toys are not marketed for the right age group... Talmage, Grant and Sandra prefer her toys over their own! I guess now I have to watch out for the stairs and anything else she can figure out how to get into. It is funny to me that we spend so much time wanting our children to progress and then figuring out how to deal with them once they do!
