So baby V took her first "crawl" today. It was pretty much cuteness personified in the crawlness of her little leggies and all that moving forwardness. I'm pretty stoked. I think she was interested in being earlier than average (9 months is average) and she'll be 9 months in a few days; or more likely she just really wanted my car keys (the "crawl goal").
My son crawled at 7 months...but he did the commando crawl (dragging his belly like a commando). Baby V has decided on the "traditional crawl"; I figure she is either too elegant for the commando crawl, or her belly is just too big!. Anyway, it's awesome because I think crawling babies are cute. I like to watch the cute little bums of cute little crawlers.
Oh, and so this post isn't excruciatingly mundane (or maybe I'll be making it worse) I thought I would tell you some of Violet's nicknames:
I like to nickname.
ps. she's not as blond as she looks here. In fact, she's brunette. For some reason she looks quite golden in this pic...probably the photo filter.
