She's JUST under 5 months old, and she crawled today!!!
She has been rolling around on the floor, and turning herself around in circles on her tummy... but today she crawled!!

There was a mouse from the other computer on the floor, and it has a glowing blue light on top. She's fascinated with it! Anyway, she caught sight of it, and crawled straight for it! It was really slow, but she actually did it several times, and she DID catch it!!


I even got a little bit of it on video.
ETA: Video link is on post #4!!

Okay, I uploaded the little video!!! The thing is, it only lets me record 20 or 30 seconds at a time.... and so she only really CRAWLS once at the very end. She actually did do it more, but I couldn't catch it all on the video.

Crawling!

My baby is similar age (born 1/25) and he's been doing that for awhile. I nearly freaked the first time it happened- he was napping on the bed on his tummy and when I went in to get him he was 3 feet away from where I put him on the bed

needless to say, I'm A LOT more careful now!!!

Thanks!!


Actually, she's been getting around already... by rolling, and turning herself in circles... she's never in the same place that I put her down in... :LOL ... but this is the first time I have seen her CRAWL STRAIGHT... and she was obviously after that glowing blue light.

WOW!! I can't even imagine...that's pretty amazing. I saw a 5 month crawling at the LLL conference this past weekend and I was totally flipped out over it. It was facinating to see such a tiny person move!! THe mom said her older ds did it at 5 months old too and he walked at 8 months. Oh, and this baby could already pull herself up on furniture and stuff......

The mom said she was actually bummed cuz now its so much harder to watch her!!LOL!!! I don't envy you at all. But I don't think I have anything to worry about. DD doesn't even roll over now at 4 months, much less crawl. I'm hoping she doesn't crawl until at LEAST 8 months like her brother which I thought was average. I guess we've got some super over achievers over here at MDC.....GO babies!!!!

Oh, and the pic in your siggy is very cute too!!!

Thanks!


I totally agree... shes already harder to watch!! Diaper changes are IMPOSSIBLE, because she will NOT lay still.. shes after everything!! And now that she can get around on the floor, she can actually REACH the stuff she isnt supposed to get into.... aghhhhhhhhh! My house is a MESS, and I really have to clean it... and I have no time because I cannot keep up with this baby!! :LOL
