C is for...

CRAWLING & CRUISING

I think Addy started crawling shortly after she turned 7 months...but she had been trying for so damn long, I'm not really sure of the "Hey, she's finally crawling" moment. Also, she crawls a little unusually - she propels herself forward with her right foot, then drags her left leg behind her, as if it's paralyzed. I do remember that just one day after she finally crawled, she also pulled herself up. And slowly over the past couple weeks, she's been confidently cruising along the furniture.

It's rather difficult to catch videos of Addy because as soon as she sees the Flip video recorder, she stops what she's doing and moves to grab it. So, nearly every video we have of her ends with a close-up of her face and her hand reaching for the recorder.

Here's my favorite video of her crawling. She loves to take baggage with her when she crawls...and in this one, she has a hippo toy that squeaks with her movements (for some reason, I was calling it a piggy in the video)...


And in this video, she's bringing along a paper plate with her...


And here's a video of her cruising along the furniture...

  1. Lol! Lilah does that same slide/crawl thing that Addison's doing with the paper plate, but with DVD cases. Love it.
