Two Knees Closer to Crawling

Well, this past Thursday Rachel decided to start doing big girl push-ups. Yesterday, she decided to co-ordinate pushing up with her arms and deliberately bringing her knees up under her. Before she would quickly bring all appendages in and push off backwards. She is now taking her time and staying in the hands/knees position for a few seconds before pushing. She has even pushed forward a couple of times, most of the time she goes backward. It's just so exciting! She also loves to give us "kisses." She'll grab our faces and bring her open mouth to our cheeks or nose and "kiss" us. It's the funniest thing ever! I know we taught her this because we've done it to her since she came home from the hospital.

The only bad news I have is that Rachel has an ear infection. This is her second one. I know some babies have had more but I was really hoping to make her first year with only one infection. Oh well, she'll see the ENT again in September and he'll let us know how he thinks she is doing after we get her hearing tested again. She may need to get tubes, which would be a real bummer.

Anyway, no pictures today. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be quicker on the draw and get some of her in her new hands and knees position. :)


  1. Yay! Go Rachel! She'll be crawling in no time!! She's come a long way!
    Love you Rachel! ;)
