rhythm

My little baby is 9 months old today!  We sure have loved having her as an addition to our family.  When Berkeley was a baby, Kendall was just two years old, and didn’t really get into the baby thing.  It’s amazing how different it has been this time around, with a 5 and 3 year old when Emery was born (now 6 and 4) and how they do everything they can to try to be a second and third mother to her!

Emery is all but crawling now.  She can scoot or roll herself anywhere she wants to go, but when it comes to getting up on all fours and crawling, she doesn’t quite have the rhythm down.  She’ll move her hands forward but not her legs, and then fall flat on her belly.  Or she’ll move her legs forward but not her arms, and again. . . flat on her belly.  It’s pretty funny to watch, but it gets her where she needs to go for now.  I’m sure it won’t be long before she’ll just take off!

Perhaps you should consider getting some plastic Smart Balance to replace the butter. That is what a good dietician would do.

She is too cute! I think replacing it with smart balance is a good idea. In fact, I should go do that with minetoo. :)
