Chloe loves her blankey. She has to have this blankey to sleep. Whenever we wrap her up in it, she'll rub her face against it and then look up with a huge smile. I never would have picked this blanket as her comfort object, but she did and she loves it! Yes, she's sleeping with her butt in the air.
So, our little monkey is still not crawling; well not forwards anyway. She's really good at getting up on her hands and knees and rocking, but then she ends up pushing herself backwards with her hands. She's pretty much mastered crawling backwards and pivoting, but as for going forward, no such luck. Only being able to crawl backwards has been really frustrating for Chloe and for us. She's always getting stuck in the corners or under her crib and isn't able to get out. She'll just cry and cry until we come and move her; and then it usually starts all over again. I keep hoping that she'll get stuck against the wall one day and then magically push off and start crawling forward. Hasn't happened yet, but my fingers are still crossed. Learning to crawl has been further halted with Chloe's new learned ability to go from her stomach to sitting. I'll put her on her stomach and within a minute she'll be sitting up, content to play with whatever is in reach. She sure has a mind of her own. I know that I shouldn't compare, but I'm guilty of looking at the younger, crawling babies in our ward and wondering what's wrong with mine. Then, I have to remind myself that all babies develop at their own rate, and she will when she's ready. In the mean time, I'm kind of grateful that she's not getting in to everything yet.
