We have forward motion!

She finally has it figured out. For the past month or so, Elsie has been up on all fours, rocking back and forth, scooching backwards on the floor, rolling sideways, pivoting on her stomach to turn. In the last couple of days she has been rocking back and forth and taking one big lunge forward to reach what she wants. Today, the knees started moving and we had bonafide forward crawling.

I remember after she rolled over for the first time, it took about a week for her to go from tentative roller to, "I've been doing this all my life." By next weekend, we may have a speed demon on our hands.

Eli kept saying that she was going to walk before she crawled, but I knew that was a far-fetched statement.

Here we go.
