Mara crawled last night for the first time! She's been so close for awhile, and last night she did it! She was pretty hesitant, but there was some definite crawling going on! After awhile (Jay kept moving her tosys so she had to crawl to get them) she got tired and was just dragging her legs behind her, but least she was moving forward instead of backwards, which is what she had usually been doing up until now! Jay got it on tape, and I got a few pictures (not like you can really tell that she's crawling in pictures!).

I'm interested to see if she remembers today that she can do it or not! So far she's just dragging herself to where she wants to be, or rolling there, but I'm sure at some point she'll remember that she can get places a little faster if she crawls! It's probably a good time to go get a baby gate or two!

(I'll see if I can figure out how to post a video here...otherwise I might be able to link to it if I can't post it!)
