In the In between

I feel like we are at a tricky developmental stage right now. She's an awesome little crawler and I just love watching her scoot around on all fours to get where she needs to go. Although, I will say that my girl is a tad bit lazy and only crawls to get to a toy that she can't reach or something that I've taken away that she's not supposed to have. She's not a "recreational crawler", in fact she'll crawl a few feet, put her head down and take a rest and then keep on trucking. It's adorable to watch. I'll try to get it on video, but usually when I pull out the camera she either stops and stares at it or lunges for it.

She's also getting really good at pulling herself up on the couch and on the TV set (which is a big no-no), but is having a difficult time couch walking. She gets so frustrated when she can't stand up on her own. She gets all red in the face and she yells.

She's in between. She can crawl around on the floor and pull herself on up, but she can't quite stand without assistance or walk around freely. She'll get there, and hopefully take her time doing it. I guess part of parenting is letting them learn on their own and not rush in to help them every time they falter.

Hi Melissa!

Don't worry, they progress real fast! I remember a week before my boy turns 1 year old, he was still couch walking... and could only managed maximum 15 steps unassisted... and all of a sudden, one day he just walks... and walks and walks... he's 13 mths now and boy oh boy... how I miss his crawling days... :P

Do get ready the camera and start recording and snapping pictures whenever you can! Memories like this will not come by again!

Happy mothering! :)

LOL! :) How adorable!! My youngest was the same way with crawling. She would crawl just a little bit and then rest. While my oldest never even crawled. She just got up and started walking at 10 months old. But she also started talking at 10 months. My youngest is 2 and still isn't talking! Every child progreses at their own pace, but she is so adorable!

Oh boy, Melissa. Relish this time because once she's walking, it's a whole new world called 'toddlerdom'! And then you will find yourself chasing, chasing, chasing and saying to yourself 'remember when she used to just crawl a few feet and take a break?'

Enjoy it. From the sounds of it, it's not going to last long. ;)
