Lucy on the move!

We have been waiting expectantly for Lucy to start crawling. She is showing lots of signs. She will get up on her hands and knees sometimes. If she is sitting and wants something out of reach, she will stretch and stretch for it. Not one to give in to frustration, Lucy will roll onto her tummy to see if that puts her closer. If not, she will rotate herself and roll sideways towards an object. Unfortunately, the video camera has not been ready when this happens, but she has done it a couple of times. It's an amazing trick to see.

I hope she does not get used to doing it, because then she might not bother with crawling or walking! I suppose jealousy of Jacob will eventually kick in and motivate her to walk. She does admire him quite a bit. Lucy sometimes just stares at Jacob, who is undoubtedly fascinating. Sometimes she grabs at him, with Jacob responding, "Lucy, be gentle." Or, "Put Lucy in swing!" Maybe someday it will be a mutual admiration society, but today is not that day.
