what the...?

ellie started crawling like a week ago! a week ago, right? maybe two weeks. whatever.

yesterday she kept fussing and wouldn't go to sleep at bedtime. that's normal. there's about a 15-minute period where i go in and out, in and out, of her nursery giving her the pacifier. well, i went in once last night, and she was standing up! she got from wrapped up in her blanket on her tummy to standing up by herself!

holy crap.

and this morning she's been pulling herself up on the coffee table.

my sister just called to tell me this story:

she crawled over to the ottoman and pulled herself up. doc was sitting there. he is very interested, by the way, in how this little baby that has only laid and kicked her arms and legs for so many months is all of a sudden moving. me and you both, doc. anyway, she stood up and was cooing and laughing at him. all of a sudden, he sneezed. ellie went flat on her butt and started to cry. haha. he scared her.

funny girl.

quit standing up, and things like that won't happen! geez.

i thought i was gonna be able to get used to crawling for a little while.

this is ridiculous.

You're in for it now!
Yeah - usually the crawling to walking phase goes pretty quick.
Consider it 'unsolicited weightloss'
That's what it usually amounted to for me...
