Crawling…

Standard

Lots has happened since the last post.  We spent the 4th of July with Norie’s family in Galveston, which meant Evie had her second crack at her grandpa’s pool.  He bought her a floating golf cart to help ease her into it all.  She was apprehensive at first, but it didn’t take long for her to decide that pools are awesome and floaties are the best:

The other big news is that she started crawling a little over a week ago.  She’s learned how to switch from crawling to sitting and back, and is generally on the go most of the time:

I’d been afraid of her being mobile for a while but am actually finding it to be a little easier.  We have her main play area well baby-proofed, so I can let her roam.  I have to keep an eye on her, of course, but I don’t have to constantly move her or her toys to keep her entertained.  I also think she’d gotten pretty bored with being stuck in one place, and this opens up a whole new set of activities for her, such as charging at her dad:

In addition to crawling, she’s also getting really good at manipulating the things around her.  She strums the ukulele on a regular basis and got a whole new set of toys that give her practice with her fine motor skills.  All of this means that the foam floor that we thought was such a great idea is now little more than a giant puzzle for Evie to take apart:

Other than that, she remains a happy, healthy baby:
