She has the gift (curse) of inheriting my ability to put my feet over my head. Benifitical for joining Cirque de Soleil, but not so good for developing gross motor skills. she did not sit strongly till 9 months, and now I am pleased to announce Annabeth began crawling at14 months and 27 days (for those who are not parents, most babies crawl between 8 and 10 months). While not technically a milestone in a pediatritions book, it is in ours!! We are hoping that now that her hips are tighter, enabling her to crawl, walking will not be far behind.
This development has been like a switch flipped, she can now go from back to stomach to sitting up to crawling and reverse that process. She could not do this last week. She did bits of the process...but now she needs no assistance any step of the way. It is strange to go in and get her in the morning, and she is sitting up playing in her crib...something usually seen at 5-6 months.
This snippit of crawling was taken on Friday (3 days after the first attempt), and now 4 days later she can cross a room, but she has not gotten very speedy yet, that may take another 3 days.
