Elbows and Knees

Before babies first start to crawl, they get on their hands and knees, rock back and forth, and then slowly over time, they begin to crawl. But the rocking back and forth is kinda the basis of learning how to crawl. Well, Marisa did just that this morning, but put her own twist on it. She was on her elbows and knees instead.
While I was getting for the day, Marisa was playing on the floor in our living room. I needed to wait for my hair straightner to heat up so I decided to go play with Marisa for a little bit. I just sat there watching her trying to reach for a toy. She usually rolls around and twists in all sorts of ways to get to the toy but this morning she decided to do something else! She got on her elbows and knees, rocked back and forth, and then lunged forward with one hand up so she can reach her toy! I freaked out!!! I think I scared her because she looked at me like, "Ok, crazy lady." Like any mother, I smoothered her with kisses and praise because she is starting yet another milestone in her life. A minute later she did it again! This time she looked at me and smiled right after. Tim and I better watch out! Marisa will soon be taking over the house! Oh wait, she already does...haha.

Hey Tanya, how are you? Well this is your cousin Megan. I text Sara so she could tell me your blog name, so i could look at it. Maurisa is so so stinking cute. It looks like you guys are doing well. We just got back from Lori and Scott's house and I saw Sara and Wayne (Wankle). You guys are so cute. I am excited to look at your blog more often, it is such a fun thing. Well congrats on Maurisa crawling, she is getting so big. Have a great week!

Hey I am glad that you responded so fast. I know that Jenny and Turk have one, but I do not know what it is. She also never updates it. Other than that, no one else has jumped onto the blogging thing yet. I am trying to convince them all, so we can keep in touch. It is great that all your family has blogs since you all live from away from each other, it is such a fun way to stay in touch with family and friends. I do not know if you know Mindi is pregnant and she is due April 16th, and we are so excited. They think it is a boy, but they are not sure yet. Well have a great day, I will let you know if anyone gets a blog and i will send you the link.
