Jane is crawling!
Jane is now 11 months and just started crawling! We're pretty excited about her mobility, but I'm also a little nervous because not everything in our house is baby proofed. I'm most nervous about our set of 12 stairs. Annabelle fell down them twice when she was a baby. I thought she was going to die or at least have a broken arm. She was fine, thankfully. But I do not want that to happen again, ever. The baby gate doesn't fit well at the top of the stairs so I'll most likely push the couch up close to block it until we teach her to go down herself, backward. The biggest challenge will be getting her siblings to remember to push the couch back when they go up and down the stairs. Or maybe I'll just have her wear Annabelle's monkey backpack when she's on the ground crawling and I'll loop it around the foot of the table or a couch. Hmmm, not a bad idea.
Annabelle keeps laying down in front of Jane while she's crawling and Jane just crawls right over and on top of her head. It's pretty hilarious. We can already see some fun things in Jane's (baby number four) personality :). Here are a couple short clips the kids and I took of Jane crawling around.
