Moving

As promised, I've recovered from my trip to LA and have been working on my crawling. I've been 'scooting' around for a little while now, but I mostly went backwards. Everything just kept getting farther and farther away. I thought, this moving thing sucks! I'm better off staying put. But something about the plane flight to LA caused me to make my first breakthrough. I figured out how to get up on my hands and knees when I got to Grandma and Grandpa's house in LA... at about 3am my time. A couple of days ago I figured out how to take about 2 'crawls' forward... which meant I went about an inch... but hey, it was FORWARD.

Well, today I did it. I made it to the holy grail - my rubber ducky. By the way, Anna, I like duckies WAY more than you do! But then again... I like bottles even more than ducky. Its not pretty... but it worked. I'll only get better from here. Oh and I even went from (use bad Chinese accent here) crawling-position to sitting-position three times today!

The "crawl" looks more like a crab going sideways. Oh well. Progress is progress -- keep it up!

Great job Dahlia! You did it baby, the next is to stand up and pull all the things off the tables.

Man, that looks difficult! I was so happy when she made it there--she worked hard for that. :)
