Crawling and now onto walking!

Olivia has mastered crawling forward! She no longer goes backward or rolls. This new mode of locomotion has become her favorite past time.
Over the past month she began by getting up on all fours and rocking back and fourth and then to taking one or two steps. We thought for sure she would be a crawling demon once we got to LA for my brother's wedding, but she still just crawled forward once or twice before she feel to her stomach.
However, the very next day when we got home she was crawling everywhere! She even conquered the slippery hard wood floors! I put a video of her crawling at the bottom of the blog. Please excuse the kettle going off and my annoying baby voice. :) I love in the video the dog parade and when she starts to crawl she does her motor boat sound. She sounds like she is powered by a little invisible motor.
I also included a video of her being pulled in the wagon by Brandon at Chris and Erica's wedding. I wanted to capture her cute laughter and how much she loved it.

Not only is she crawling, but she began to pull herself up on furniture to stand. I guess she thought crawling was just not good enough. Show off!
Getting higher....
Almost there....
So close I can taste it.... and the next pic was not taken since I was too busy picking my crying babe off the floor. Unfortunately her reach was not long enough to get to the top of the table.
Side stepping around the ottoman without any assistance! My mom said she did this with their coffee table. She predicts she will be walking in a month. Gosh I hope not! I am just getting used to her being so mobile.


  1. What a big girl! I cannot believe how much she has grown in the past few months!!

  2. You go, Girl! Love, love, love, Nina

  3. Yay!! Go Olivia! She is soooooo adorable!
