From the first few days Kensie was born, I remember picking up those sweet baby clothes in all different sizes and wondering how on earth she will ever get that big! But, now she's quickly approaching the 12-18 month size, and will soon be out of those too. Crazy.
So, where is this going???
Over the past 10 days, little miss k has discovered the new world of crawling! And boy, has she learned quick! I'm pretty sure she will be walking in a couple weeks or less. She loves to pull herself up....looks at you to share in her joy of accomplishment.....then smiles and lets go on purpose to see how long she can stand by herself. Then, PLOP. She falls down only to do it again. Over and over. Once she's satisfied with her up-down routine, she'll take off crawling to the next toy or activity that looks interesting. (I have another adorable video that I can't show....arrg, but trust me...utter cuteness).
I DO enjoy this stage as she is not crying out of frustration due to lack of mobility- uh, like she used to all-the-freaking-time. However, I can't just sit her down with a circle of toys around her and go about my business around the house anymore. She needs CONSTANT supervision = less computer time, less chores, more chasing, BUT, on the other hand.....LOTS more giggling. In the end, I'd say it's worth it. :)
This is also a new position that you will find Kensie in lately: both arms back behind her neck, like she doesn't have a care in the world. You will find her sleeping, relaxing, and even eating like this. Cracks us up.
(notable item: Greg's "Most Valuable Dad" shirt- bought by one of his guy friends. Even though I mocked him for wearing it 3 days in a row, I love it)
I will leave you with one last pic:
She fell asleep like this after enjoying her up-down routine in the crib for 45 minutes. I guess when your workout is over, you probably should stretch those hamstrings....
