Soooo Close!!

I just realized this is my 100th post! Yippy doo da! I have nothing celebratory planned only cute photos of Sophia. Which is celebration enough in my books!!




She is getting so close to fully pulling herself up onto furniture. She gets half way then stops. She has managed a few times to pull all the way up then does a dramatic fall and scares me half to death. I have no photographic evidence of a full unassisted standing position just yet. It's going to happen soon I can feel it in my bones! I realize most babies have accomplished this feat as well as crawling long ago. But for Sophia and I this is a big deal. She is also so close to crawling. I always thought she wouldn't crawl. I figured she would just go directly to walking. I may be wrong, we may have a crawler on our hands soon. At nap time as she is drifting off to sleep I tell her tales of what she can do once she is crawling or walking. All the trouble she can get into. I tell her mommy will worry over every bump and bruise but is so excited for her to explore and find the Tupperware cabinet all by herself! I can't wait to put up gates and baby proof the house. All the other mommies tell me be glad she doesn't crawl. It's so much more work. I realize this but i want my baby girl to have adventures under the kitchen table and chase Lilly. It will come. For now I enjoy her little booty scoot.



Here are some pictures of her 'almost there' moments....



Here was her motivation...

Trying to reach daddy on the computer chair. Look at those ripped shoulders, ha!....

"Mommy you should really wipe my nose...even though I will get really mad at you" - Sophia...

Do you think she is too close to the TV?? She 'booty scoots' her self all the way up close...

All kids learn to crawl and walk eventually. Izzy still isn't crawling or pulling up either. Don't worry mama!

I am singin "Boot Scootin' Boogie" over here for Miss Sophie! Probably because I was just at the rodeo and feel real country!! Yeehaw to her scootin' booty!!
And happy 100th!!

Congrats on your 100th post! More pics of Sophia are always appreciated! I actually liked the crawling stage because my kids were happier being able to move around. They were never content just to sit and look at things. It looks like she is only a few weeks away from being mobile.

What a cute little gal. Those firsts and "almost" firsts are so much fun, even if they bring more work!

Happy 100th post blogoversary! She will be pulling up before you know it, then "traveling" all around things. The first steps are so exciting!
