Our Little Christmas Crawler

Just before Christmas, on December 22, 2009 Whitney crawled for the first time!!! We were at my friend Jenni's house with our other friend Leah and all of our kids for a little playdate/Christmas get together. Jenni has three boys and they had a foam sword that was just out of Whitney's reach. Whitney must have been fascinated (we do not have any of these toys at our house) and decided this was worth crawling to go check out. She crawled about 4 paces and reached the sword. We all saw her and were so excited! Whitney was also proud of herself - she sat up and clapped for herself with a big smile on her face. Here is a video of Whitney crawling. She is also starting to get it when we say "How big is Whitney? So big!" Hopefully she will be signing more than "milk" and "doggie" soon :)

Great job Whitney!! How fun to see her crawling all around. And she has perfect form unlike Ella who crawls with her left leg out to the side like a rudder. Enjoy every milestone!!! Next will be pulling up to standing:)

She looks like a total pro, and I love how Anne parrots everything you say!

Hiiii so glad you found our blog and left a note so I could then find you! Your girls are adorable...I had to take the computer in to show my husband your little Whitney, she just makes you smile looking at her, what a doll. I just noticed in your profile that Whitney had heart surgery on 12/1/08...our little Reid had his the very next day on 12/2/08 (it was his 2nd heart surgery) so we were both praying at the same time for our little ones in the hospital! She looks like she is doing great!
