a little determination

At 9 Months...
we saw a new lyda when she conquered sitting up.  i suppose with so many around, she too wanted inclusion which is tough to get when lying on the floor.  sitting up brought us into her life.  she could engage, keep an eye on her brother and sister, participate.

all was good - for a moment.
then a new discovery - there's more.  i can move!
so, onto phase two.  crawling.
at the start of month 9, she was straddling the fence - right on the verge of making that first move.  she had crawling, kind of...  just what to do with that leg?  now, two weeks in lyda's got it down.  her crawl is 'lyda specific,' moving with one knee while dragging the other leg along, but it gets her from point a to b.  
i have never child proofed anything before, but with lyda this is a necessary step.
 - as she incessantly heads for the dog bowl, and i repeatedly carry her away far across the kitchen.  here she comes again.
a determined little lady
give me that rattle!

that's what i wanted

happy girl
