Guess who's got some mad new skills!

That's right, the princess does!!
She is now crawling on her hands and knees! No more pulling with her hands and sliding. The funny thing is she goes backwards a lot now. I don't know if she thinks she'll get there faster, but I'll definitely have to get that one on video! She is also pulling up to everything. She'll even push herself to standing in the middle of the room, but she falls back on her bum before she can stand.
In this first video, she starts to move the old way, until I stop her, and then she crawls on her hands and knees.






We also cut her hair. We evened it up, and although I was horrified at first, its a cute bob now. We had to get rid of the partial mullet. Hopefully now it will grow long all even. I have a hard time getting before and after pictures, because the girl won't sit still for 5 seconds!
Before...
After.

I really think she will start walking soon. She is so close. She will look so funny walking, because she is so tiny. This is my 4 month old niece next to my 19 month old princess! Not much difference!

I'll I have to say is ADORABLE! I can't seem to get enough of her. Glad to hear she is becoming more and more mobile even if that means more activity in the house. And man, I didn't realize she was that little of a peanut.

I love her hair, it's adorable! The crawling backwards, both my kids did for a long time. I love crawling babies, WTG Arina!

Melissa said...

She's going to be running all over before you know it!!

I really need to give Claire a haircut too, but I keep having nightmares about poking her with the scissors and just haven't gotten up the courage...

Claire was sitting with her friend at daycare today and someone remarked that the other girl was bigger...she's 7 months. Oh well, petite is cute!
