This past week she has been cutting her first two teeth -- bottom front. I imagine they'll completely come through within the next 7 days.|
And she's starting to crawl! She's only done it once, today... but when she learned how to roll over, all she needed was to do it once, then she's been doing it non-stop ever since! Right now she's pulling herself along her belly.. but I imagine within a couple months it'll be full-blown crawling (on hands/knees). I know this is beginning crawling because it's nothing like creeping, when she'd stick her butt into the air and her face into the ground.
When I first tried making her crawl, I sat 5 feet away from her shaking an object... hoping it would compel her to move towards me. No, she was more interested in a bag of diapers on the ground.
So then I sat a couple inches from her (she was on one side of the bed), and she grabbed for the object... and I continued gradually scooting backwards towards the other side of the bed, always staying within a few inches from her. And she did it!
