And she crawls! The crowd goes wild!

Hannah is 11 months and 9 days old. This week she finally figured out how to crawl. Of course I was convinced she was going to become a criminal and never learn to read, but apparently that's not true. This article says it's because kids spend less time on their tummies than they used to, and less and less are crawling. I feel kind of relieved, but still.
Hooray, she figured it out! (Yes we are too poor to afford any toys but packages of wipes and mismatched socks, as you can see in the video)

Another thing she does now is signing "more, more". This is always when she wants more food, which is always. She loves to eat. She is also saying, "uh-oh" and "mamamamama" and finds her sister Kenzie hilarious. She loves dogs and cats, but is also kind of afraid of them. She still buries her head in my shoulder when she is being shy and she loves her blankie. She thinks that crawling is a pain, and loves to practice walking.

What a cute little angel! Hannah still prefers to point to our fingers until they are close enough that she can grab them and then let us help her walk where she wants to go. And I never believed that crap about if kids walk before they crawl they are more likely to be a criminal. Seems about as believable as "if they eat chocolate, they are more likely to be obese."

What a cute video and what a darling baby. Thank you for posting and sharing.
By the way Mike, if they eat chocolate they are more likely to be sweet. If you don't believe me, ask Stephanie.
