Well, it's official! Our sweet little Audia is crawling. Chris makes fun of me because according to him, she was crawling a week and a half ago, when she started to crawl two or three steps at a time. But I didn't feel like I could really say that she was crawling until she'd stopped army crawling. And, as of Friday or Saturday, she's officially done army crawling and has mastered crawling. Not only is she crawling, but she is also pulling herself up into a kneeling and standing positions pretty regularly now too. It has been so much fun to watch her explore with her new found freedom....she is constantly pulling herself up to look over the edge of the coffee table, look inside the moving boxes we have everywhere, and to see her exersaucer from a new perspective. She loves to kneel over her toy box and pull everything out of it.

Only 9 more days and she and I will be off to Minnesota! It is supposed to be in the 90s all week, and while I would prefer it to be in the 70's or 80's, it certainly makes it easier to say goodbye to AZ! Plus, now I can officially mail all of Audia's warmer clothes to MN without worrying about whether or not we might need them before we go. Additionally, now I can have Audia wear some of the 9 month sized summer clothes we have for her before she grows out of them (like, tomorrow....)

I've posted a video of her crawling at www.ericacarlson.com/videos (as well as a few other videos) enjoy!
