What we're learning now

Ava is changing so much these days. She is at such a fun age right now - she babbles, she giggles, and she is pretty cheerful (most of the time). She's mastered her sitting up and is now working on her crawling. She spends lots of time on the floor, either on blankets or just on the floor, like when we are in her room. Spending all that time on the floor, she has become fascinated with the carpet. She touches it and grabs it and continously feels it. Sometimes she just sits and touches it over and over, almost like she is petting an animal!

Spending time on the floor is also helping to prepare her for crawling. And I can wish with all my might that it wouldn't happen any time soon, but I know it's going to. Here she is tonight, trying to get herself up:

If you could see her face, you would see how hard she is concentrating. She gets very mad when she can't do something she wants to do. She can push up on her arms really well but hasn't figured out how to get both of her legs under her. She also scoots herself backwards and in circles. Just for fun tonight, we put her up on all fours, to see what she would do:

She stayed like this for a little while and rocked back and forth a few times before she finally fell. We decided we won't be doing this anymore as we want her to stay immobile for a little longer. I have a feeling she'll figure it out on her own before long anyway. We just wanted to see if she had the strength to hold herself up. She does!

  1. Love it! Not too long out Momma & Daddy! I laughed b/c Kennedy started by scooting herself backwards & in circles as well! I try to remind myself a/b how cute & funny that stage was/is, so that I never forget it. We remember always thinking, "She is going to go backwards for the rest of her life! She's going to learn to walk backwards b/f learning to walk forward even!" : ) What a big girl Miss Ava is these days!
