She Crawls!!!!!

I know it has been (or seemed like) forever since I’ve posted recent pictures. Well, today I have good reason. Juliette has been trying to learn how to crawl for weeks, but reverse was her only gear that worked. Not the most helpful, though it did get her places – mostly under chairs and tables. We’ve been spending lots of time on the floor with her this past week (and her grandparents have been excellent about spending lots of tummy time with her during the day), and she finally has begun to crawl forward! I can’t tell you how happy I was to see it happen last night. For weeks everybody has been saying something along the lines of “Well, she must be crawling all over the place now” and I would just smile and say “Not yet!” and laugh it off, but inside I was just the teensiest bit worried about the face that she wasn’t crawling when all these other babies 7, 8 or 9 months, that I am hearing about have been crawling for some time. This morning, it was Beulah trying to get her to play that motivated her to want to crawl. She’s so cute at it too! Her reverse gear still works really well, but she’s using her forward now too.

Here are some pictures takes over the last few weeks that I thought you might want to see.

  1. Everything about these is so lovely. Beautiful baby, daddy, teeth, quilts on the lawn, doggy. What a cherished time.

    I don’t remember when my first-born crawled, but she didn’t walk ’til she was 15 mo. Was always my “more careful” girl. They sure are on their own schedule sometimes!

  2. 😀 The photo of her asleep on Harald’s chest is so precious. I agree with Nancy, they do what they do at their own pace. Don’t worry she is right on schedule – HER schedule! We would love to see all three of you sometime soon. We have a house and a yard to show you!

  3. She is simply perfect…and I agree about the schedules. She’s obviously healthy and bright, bright, bright! NO WORRIES! You and Harald (and Beulah) are so lucky!

  4. Gorgeous!!!!! It’s so fun to watch a baby crawl.

    Declan never crawled. He’d roll and scoot everywhere until he walked at 10 months.
