It's Official!

At 8.5 months old, my baby girl is crawling!  She officially took more than two "crawls" on Friday evening (7/30/10), so I had to call it.  We were at the lake and she crawled across the kitchen to me - it was so sweet!  Oh, I almost cried.  This video is from this afternoon.  As you can see, she is still slow and her hips tend to swivel a bit, but she has definitely mastered the movements.  I'm sure by the end of the week she will be fast as lightning!

We went out today and bought a baby gate to put up in the kitchen in front of the back door and the entrance to the basement stairs.  This is the beginning of the craziness, I can tell!
