Learning to Crawl

FINALLY (for 2 reasons)!!!!!   The wait is over....

1.  Gracie started crawling on Tuesday, October 21st.
2.  The crawling video is posted (after many hours trying to upload it) .

We are so excited that Little Miss Gracie is on the move.  For the last 3-4 weeks, I've been saying....I bet she starts crawling and she finally did.  Gracie had been easily going from a sitting position to putting both palms on the floor and either going all the way onto her tummy and/or back up to sitting.  While Todd's parents were here visiting she was able to get herself just anywhere she wanted to be in a 1-2 foot radius of where we put her by leaning forward and readjusting her position.

Well, something finally clicked - she realized she could move her hands forward and slide her knees to get to where she wanted to go!  We were both so thrilled that she waited until the evening when Todd was home from work before making her first moves (although, Ellee, Todd's Mom, was disappointed that she missed this milestone by only 12 hours - she flew back home to SC that morning).  

Hope you enjoy the long awaited video of her 1st attempt of learning to crawl.  

I'll post more videos of her REALLY moving now that she's a crawling pro!  Time to baby proof the house.  Tell me again, why we encouraged her to start moving?  Wish us good luck in keeping up with her.
