A Fearless Explorer

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Exploring the hallways of Aunt Stacey and Uncle Dan's house.

We were at Grandma Sue and Grandpa's house yesterday evening for supper. When Cayman insisted that she was all done eating [by throwing her plate of food on the floor], she was cleaned up and given permission to get down and crawl around.

She exited the kitchen and down the hallway she went, turning the corner and then out of sight.

We laughed to watch her confidently "own" the floor she crawls on. This can be anywhere we are at - the doctor's office, other houses, a waiting room. She fearlessly crawls into new territory.

It had me remembering a post I wrote over five months ago about her reluctancy to wander and explore. She has definitely conquered that. And I love every minute that I have to chase after her.

This is such a significant step! Ah, with the desire to move - the perfect time to give her external support in standing - to take more significant 'steps'.

What strides she's made in these past five months. Just imagine how much more she will accomplish in the next five.

I can't wait for the day that I have to chase Kadyn, He is trying so hard to crawl!! :)

I think it's awesome that she is fearless in crawling. She just gets more adorable!

I love that she is wanting to explore. She has come so far in just 5 months, from not wanting to move from the carpet to anywhere in the house and other houses, etc. She just amazes me :)
