was all it took for Katie to go from a sitting baby to a mobile toddler. She started army crawling last Sunday, the 27th. In the course of one week, she has learned how to get back into a sitting position from her stomach, crawl on her hands and knees across the room, and pull up on to her knees. Today she finally pulled up on to her feet.
It's amazing to me how fast she is growing up. I am hit hard with the realization that my baby isn't going to be a baby for much longer. She is still very cuddly and loves to be held but she is asserting her independence. And I think that she is going to make Michael think twice about leaving his belongings out in Katie's reach. Anything available is now fair game.....I tried to warn him ahead of time!
In the midst of all this movement, Katie is also getting her third tooth. She already has the bottom two front teeth. This next tooth crept in unnoticed as it's not one of the two front teeth on top but one of the lateral incisors. It's already broken through the gums and explains the fever and slight crankiness. Maybe someday Katie will open her mouth for 5 seconds so I can take a picture of her cute little teeth!
