I've been promising a video of Ruthie crawling for a while now and finally here it is! She's gotten quite good by now, since those first uncoordinated attempts a month and a half ago. She's our earliest crawler by far, neither of her sisters crawled until 8 months. I guess she had the motivations of trying to get where her sisters were and get what they were playing with. It's so amazing to watch a little person learn to move around like this, to watch her brain develop and her muscles develop and the coordination between the two develop. It's fun to see as she gets better everyday and learns something new.
She is also pulling up on things and standing there to play with whatever she can grab now. Nothing on the coffee table is safe any more:) It's a whole new ballgame with two older sisters who have small toys, like to build towers, use scissors and crayons and leave a paper trail on the floor behind them. Anna and Josie are getting better at picking up after themselves and are also good at spotting every time Ruthie gets something in her mouth that she shouldn't have. They are a cause and a solution. They are good big sisters and are good at including Ruthie in their play as little as she is and love to play little games with her and get her to laugh as well.
