Baby on the Move?!?!

Paisley has always been a busy girl.  She isn't content to just sit still for long periods and seems to constantly be exploring her surroundings.  And I've always known that as soon as she can take off, she will.  But I expected to have a few more months of sweet, tiny baby-cuddle time before that happened.

However, she's been rolling for a while now and can maneuver her way across the floor/crib/changing table/etc. in the blink of an eye.  But starting yesterday, she started doing an army crawl on the floor using her elbows to propel her forward.  And twice I caught her pulling her knees underneath her into CRAWL position!!!  

What in the world are we going to do with a CRAWLER???  We are so not ready for a mobile baby.  Let me tell you- we are still trying to figure out how in the world to change a diaper on a baby that immediately does an alligator roll when you lay her down.  I've actually learned how to change it with her on her belly.  And I can also dress her that way.  The child moves around so much in her crib overnight that I spend all night readjusting the video monitor so that I can see her.

But crawling?  Not yet, please.  I just need a bit more time to prepare myself, my pets, and my home for what's coming...


  1. my son is doing the same thing!
    hes already crawled twice, im so not
    ready for all that!

  2. i echo your same sentiments!! where do babies seem to get all their energy? ;)

  3. LOL, unfortunately, they don't wait until you are ready! My little guy has no desire to be mobile, he's just content being in one place. I know he'll get moving when he wants, but for now, I'm grateful for the down time before the new baby comes:). Have fun!

  4. This makes me laugh! I think E is like the complete opposite...I worry she'll be a super late crawler. She doesn't even like to roll over and has never rolled from her back to her belly. Sounds like Miss P is an active little girl!

  5. Hey, the little girl wants to keep her mama on her toes! What a talented little baby you have. Enjoy!

  6. She is one busy girl. Your right, it all happens so quick. Way to quickly for us parents. She's about to give you a workout of a lifetime though so get ready.
