December 23, 2008: Amelia crawled up on her knees for the first time.
She's been scooting like crazy, doing her "rugby crawl" for weeks now, chasing after the cats and her big sister. She would get up on her hands and knees and rock. And finally, after what seemed like an eternity of preparation, she took off while her sweet cousin Lucas watched. He was totally jealous.
And she's been going like crazy ever since. She is sneaky quick, and will disappear from sight in a matter of seconds.
When she is very excited, and crawling fast towards something she really wants, her tongue hangs out like Michael Jordan.
Now, when someone leaves the room, instead of crying and complaining about it, she just follows then.
She's also using Mama and Dada discriminately, and I swear she is using the word "books" correctly as well. The minute you bring a book near her, she bounces, squeals, flails her arms, and starts babbling "books, books, books, books."
Starting to seem like we have two freaky geniuses on our hands.
