Madeline is ten months old!
(Omigawd, how did that happen?!)
Madeline has been zipping around all over the place the past week, which is why she's sitting up in her bunny picture.
Lying down is no longer in her vocabulary. So much so, that sleeping has become a problem again. Who wants to sleep when you can crawl around your crib instead, Mumma?
She's getting more confident in her crawling abilities. She goes further now. She tries crawling into other rooms. She follows me to the bathroom. (Perhaps she shares her Mumma's love for playing behind the toilet?? Hopefully, we'll never find out!) She'll crawl between me and Eric depending on who she wants to play with at the moment.
Now that she's mastering the fine art of crawling, she's started seriously focusing on pulling herself up. She's just about there. She loves pulling up on the couch to see us. She loves pulling up in her crib instead of sleeping.
She's at the same time much more independent and more clingy. There were a few moments today when I walked across the room to just to get something and she lost it. She shrieked until I came back to her.
It's nice to be needed, but geesh Maddie Bear, I was just going to get your sippy cup!
