Chloe has started crawling and it is the cutest thing ever. Well, she has actually been crawling since October 23 (exactly nine months from the day she was born), but I just haven't had the time to figure out how to get a dang video off the camcorder and onto the blog until now.
What, you may ask was the first object that so desperately had to have that caused her to crawl for the first time? A fun toy? Mommy? Daddy? Nope, it was an old band-aide that she had gotten earlier in the day when she went to the doctor and got some shots. She pulled it off of her toe and I threw it across the room so she wouldn't play with it. I guess she really wanted it because next thing we knew she was crawling across the room after it with determination in her eyes.
She started off doing this kind of gimpy crawl where she would move one knee forward normal and then would straighten her other leg all the way out and stick it forward like she was trying to stand up...it was pretty funny to see. However, she has since gotten this crawling business down pat and we've had to install the baby gate at the top of the stairs and baby proof the rest of the house. It seems like she gets faster and faster everyday and just the other day she decided it was OK to crawl on hard floors, something she wasn't to sure of at first.
Here is a video of her showing off her skills.
