The time has come...

Well, I normally don't blog about my family unless it has some deeper meaning or significance to it, but this one I must share...perhaps I'll find some hidden meaning in it...

Alyssum is finally crawling!!! We've been rooting her on for at least a month and a half now putting everything in front of her that might be the thing to give her the motivation to go forward (not backwards). It ended up not being anything fancy, just some small little bath toy that she wanted to put in her mouth. I think she is such a thinker that she really had to contemplate this crawling thing before she went for it. So yay for Alyssum.

Possible deeper meanings:

1. I thought it was pretty cool how the fact that everyone else's baby (even those much younger) were crawling way before she was and it didn't bother me at all. My daughter is her own individual that is going to do things in her own time. (serious)

2. Now she won't have emotional problems or speech development issues! (sarcasm to its fullest)

Good girl, Alyssum. Now you are in for it, my friend. The girls are soon going to be teaming up against us.

Yay Alyssum! I think Ruby will be a late crawler too cuz I dont think shes anywhere near sitting up on her own yet and shes 6 months. I love the idea of just letting our children be themselves without all the pressure to do things sooner or better than others :)

You forgot to add that she also won't have any psychological scarring or attachment issues, either, now that she has officially crawled before she learns to walk. She won't go blind or refuse to eat foods that are purple. And her farts won't smell as bad.

Someone shut those people up that try to convince us we're somehow ruining our children.
