It is official, I guess

So, I think I can officially announce that Emerson is crawling. The reason for my hesitation is that it is slower than I expected. I guess when I envisioned Emy starting to crawl, she would go from nothing to light speed instantly. I have no idea where I got this notion.

Anyways, in the past three days she has spent most of her time on all fours and has only ended up on her tummy a couple times. Normally she crawls across the room on all fours and then plops down on her tummy at the very end of her destination, as if to say, "Okay, I'm here". When she is crawling, she is concentrating so hard. It is like she knows that the all-fours route is the correct way and she is trying so hard to stick with it. Everyday she gets a little better. Yesterday she figured out how to back up.

So, I guess I should be thankful that she is slow and steady for the time being. I am sure that in a few short days or weeks lightning speed will commence.
