Sandy has started moving and nothing is safe! She's been scooting for a while, but she didn't go very fast. Last week she learned to crawl. All these months I've been trying to motivate her to crawl by pushing toys just out of reach. She'd just look at the toy and find something else to look at or play with rather than go toward it. Well, last week, I learned what she is motivated by. My daughter will crawl across the room to get a half of a jelly bean.
And she's not just crawling. This morning I walked into the bathroom to find this:
So now she has learned to pull herself up, too. She's been walking around things, but she hasn't been able to get up herself until today.
Her cousin Lexie can do these things, I guess she helped Sandy learn while she was here.
So now I'm quickly trying to adjust to a mobile baby. So far it has been pretty safe to leave her for a few minutes playing with toys and trust that she wouldn't go far. No longer. This afternoon I left Sandy playing with toys and ran downstairs to get a package ready to mail. It was almost ready, I really wasn't downstairs for more than a couple of minutes, when I heard a low growl. I called Sage's name and went running upstairs to see what was going on and found Sandy eating the dog food.
