so, the olivia has been somewhat slow in the self-propelled transportation thing. she still doesn’t roll over unless on her pillow in her bed.

up until last weekend all she could do was:

  • push herself backwards
  • sit herself up on her own
  • rock on her hands and knees
  • sometimes pull herself up to standing
  • scoot (although this never became an official mode of transportation, she could do it)
  • spin herself around on her belly
  • spin herself around on her butt

no army crawling. i declared several times that she probably never would, because, quite frankly, it was undignified to drag oneself around on the ground like a snake.

saturday, that all changed as our baby moved forward while on her hands and knees. at first she would move her hands forward, then scoot her lower half forward (still on her hands and knees). i’m sorry to say, i did not record this. the past three days, she has really taken to it. yesterday morning as i was rummaging through her dresser draws, i looked up and saw her half-way across the room…crawling away from me.

because i am so excited that this child can finally move herself, i was determined to  capture this moment on camera. especially when it’s still kind of a stuttered crawling.
