The many mobility methods of Ava Urban

Breaking news!! Ava crawled! On her hands and knees! It just happened last night. She picked a crazy time to start. I was in the middle of unloading groceries, browning ground beef, boiling chicken, baking brisket, and dealing with a meltdown (Yes, I am a multi-tasker, as all women are). She did it enough that I am confident to say "Ava crawled" but not quite enough to say "Ava is crawling". But here she is, crawling, along with her other two methods of mobility: scooting and creeping. And a little show from Hope at the end too. :) Enjoy!

What an active, alert, lively little girl Miss Ava is! (as is active and alert and lively big sister Hope, who's a great role model).

BTW, at the end, do both girls sneeze and cover up, or is Hope the sneezer and Ava signing "sneeze"?? Or am I imagining this scenario??

And - are you going to have to put an extra layer of fabric on the seat of Miss Ava's britches to accommodate all that scooting? ;-)She seems to consistently favor using her right arm and left leg in getting around, I noticed...but it surely works for her!

Congratulations on Ava's new achievements!

Wow, the big deal is that she's bearing weight on her hips, isn't it?  Big step -- leading to a real one!!
