Well, it is official… The Bear is on the move. She started crawling this last Friday/Saturday-ish. I don’t have a video of it yet since it is still in that early crawl/scoot/lunge/getting frustrated she isn’t moving as fast as she would like stage. But she can definitely get that forward motion she has been striving for for so long. The whole world has opened up to her and she has discovered all the things we have left around he house that used to be just out of reach. I guess it is time to go and re-baby proof!
In other news, she has adopted Bean’s “no” head shake, although she is a little more indecisive than her sister. Her head shake is sometimes “yes”, sometimes “no” and often somewhere in between.
She was NOT happy about her first taste of avocado and kindly spit it right back out at me. (I don’t blame her, I don’t like it either!) She had similar feelings about yogurt, but has since come around (sort of).
The other night Russell and I were having a discussion about if our girls were circus performers what would they be. We decided Bear would be the person shot out of a cannon. She is fearless, and a little ball of energy. Just try to hold her in one place and see what happens! But she can also be very cuddly – as long as it is on her terms, which usually means during the night-time hours. She does love to snuggle up right after she finishes eating and fall asleep next to your chest or tucked into your shoulder.
Stay tuned and I’ll post a video of her crawling just as soon as I get one!
