1, 2, 3 CRAWL!

I type this post with excitement in my heart and tears in my eyes.

Our little girl CRAWLED for the first time today!

As you will see and hear below, it’s not the typical first timer crawl – it has crying and frustration and anger – and I couldn’t love it more.

Josephine was starting her PT session and Lana wanted to tape her back with Kinesio tape (which helps give more input so Josephine can sit straight up instead of sitting back on her sacrum bone – http://www.kinesiotaping.com/physiological-effects.php).

Apparently, Josephine was not thrilled with that idea and wanted Mama instead.

She got into quadruped and spontaneously started to crawl toward me.  Both Lana and I were speechless.  Hand went over my mouth and tears ran down my cheeks.  Our little girl crawled 2 feet!

This video is a few minutes after that event I will vividly remember forever.  It’s days like today that make me happy to have Josephine home with me and not in day care.

What more can a mom ask for…WATCH!

Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’…

A big High 5 to Josephine – she is now rolling over to get toys she wants.  Not only does she roll once, she will roll a few times to get closer to the toy (a Little People animal or talking bear from Aunt Tracy, just to name a few).

We have also seen a glimmer of Josephine reaching forward for a toy, which is slowly resembling a transition to laying down.  This is huge because this transition will get her closer to crawling.

WAY TO GO, my Little Love Lump!
