Miss Marlo: 8 Months!

Monday, February 3, 2014

By eight months, Marlo started crawling!  She began with a combo of the yogas pose "cobra" and an army crawl--dragging herself forward on her belly with outstretched open palms.  It happened when my BFF was visiting us and felt extra special.  Now she does a full army crawl and booty scootch.  Not crawling on her hands and knees yet, but not even sure if that will happen since all babies crawl differently.  She's also pulling herself up onto her knees by grabbing onto furniture or other things.   

She finally cut her first teeth!  The bottom right was first and the bottom left followed a few days after.   

Here's Marlo at Recess.  Note the small red mark on her forehead from being more mobile and falling.  That's what these days are all about lately.  On this day, she had discovered that stop sign was on a hinge and kept swinging it back and forth.  We've been going to Recess several times a week.  I like taking her from 4-6 pm.  She'd typically be bored at home, but gets to explore and watch or play with other babes.  I get to chat with adults, too, so it's a win win.
