On the Move


I am not sure why my children insist on doing the army crawl instead of getting up on their hands and knees, but it has been their crawl of choice. Mia is still not pulling up very much, however she is into just about everything.

She loves being on the move and has gotten into the dog's water/food, the DVDs, many of Austin's untouchables, every little speck of anything on the floor and much more.

I know this crawling phase won't last long so I plan to enjoy it while it lasts. She might be making more messes than before, but she is still irresistibly cute while she is making them.

Jonathan just got up one day and took off and then before I knew it he was on his way up the stairs! It was crazy! And then before I knew it he was pulling himself up on things and taking his first steps!

She's adorable!

I can almost hear her giggling in that picture! Mine only gave a smile like that once they *finally* figured out how to move in the right direction! (They always learned reverse before they could manage drive.

She is so cute, and don't you love that you don't have to sweep your floor b/c it gathers all over her clothes?

Too cute! My son always did the army crawl. He didn't start crawling correctly until he was already walking. Bizarre.

Darcie said...

Kristen said...

OH how cute!!

I can't believe she is crawling already.

I almost hated that stage because I felt like the floor needed mopped every two seconds. No fun!

Cute pics of your little Mia! :)

My boys both preferred the army crawl, Thomas eventually ventured onto traditional crawling but not Eli. He wore out so many clothes slithering along, especially because he failed to get his act together and walk until 16 months.

She is super cute.

One of my girls was an army crawler too! Eventually she got up on her hands and knees. That picture of Mia is too cute!
