About 2 months ago I was visiting teaching an 82 yr old woman who asked " Is your little girl crawling yet" to which I replied "No not yet but she is getting really close." To which the woman said " well that is to bad, when she does start to crawl spank her butt, sit her back down and say NO!" I laugh just thinking about that because anyone who has ever had a child knows the craziness we endure during the crawling phase. Get the baby up in the morning. Scour the the floor with microscopic vision for anything on the floor, such as paper, strings, dirt, food, books, basically anything that could do harm to your sweet adorable child or anything that your sweet adorable child could do harm to. It is a crazy vicious cycle of picking up constantly, vacuuming 2 maybe 3 times a day sweeping at least 4 times a day and then mopping, all this and then the sound of Bump, Thud, WAAAAAA as you realize your little one tried to conquer the stairs and failed in their attempt. Then just when you get used to this routine you realize your sweet baby is pulling herself up onto anything she can find. This has been my life for the past few weeks but hey my floors are clean!!!
This is Lydia trying to crawl away from me and the camera. It was taken after church.
She stood up all by herself Just holding on to his fingers. She is pretty proud of herself so was her daddy!
