This weekend we went down to Enumclaw to hang out with Grandma and Grandpa. (Greg is at his last Interbike in Vegas and should be home tomorrow). Maisie has been working on crawling for some time now. We aren’t sure exactly HOW she gets around – but we put her down and turn our back and the next thing we know she’s all the way across the room. We think she must be like a “hover-baby” =)
Anyway….when we got to Enumclaw she was just starting to get on her hands and knees (she’s an EXPERT sitter). By the end of the weekend she could go from laying down to sitting up on her own (she still isn’t “crawling”) and we had the hardest time getting her to sit because all she wanted to do was stand up or “walk” around.
When we got home I put her and Fi into her crib to play while I put her clothes away. Fi says, “mom look what Maisie’s doing.” I turn around and Maisie has pulled herself to standing at the crib – then we watched her let go with both hands and turn and grab her mobile.
It’s taken her awhile to show any interest but now all of a sudden she is going from 0-60 when it comes to mobility! =)
