she's on the move

Our world has completely changed now that Elsie is crawling. Everybody kept telling me to grateful that she wasn't on the move yet, but I was still very concerned that she wasn't crawling. Well, I can see their point. Don't get me wrong...I'm so excited that Elsie is crawling because, seriously, it was time and she is loving it. I just need to do some major houseproofing and not try to multi-task as much. (When I say multi-task, I mean I can't watch TV and kind of watch Elsie). Oh darn! It is so fun to see her getting better and better each day. She is able to sit up and lay down and move around all by herself. This morning was the first time that she was sitting up in her crib when I went to get her. It was really cute! Anyway, here's a little video of her crawling...ignore the annoying voice in the background.

Aaron taught Elsie to clap when he cheers for her, so Elsie does it completely on cue now. It is so funny because, even if she's crawling, as soon as she hears us say "Yay!" she'll immediately rollover and start clapping. She was doing this funny face that looked like, "OK, I'm not sure what's going on here, but everyone's clapping so I will, too" and she'd kind of look around like she was super confused. Too bad I couldn't get it on video.

That is so awesome. I'm sure Elsie is just thrilled to be roaming all over the place. I'm looking forward to the crawling phase too - knowing that I will pay the price in having the pay closer attention. The cats and dog are in for it...

WOW !! She is really in the groove. When you are in Moses Lake for Christmas, she will be a handful in a new environment and new things to crawl to and touch. She is so dang cute and beautiful !! You two are such good parents.

Kim I just read through your last couple blogs and so much has happened in a week that I miss! I love love your haircut and I'm so happy that elsie is crawling around! Isn't it so exciting. I think it is so adorable when they are sitting up in bed. Just wait until she is standing, with a big smile on her face! Love it. And I can't get either of mine to clap yet. Kate's on the verge. Yay for elsie.
