This past week Shelby has been scooting everywhere. I keep waiting for her to crawl she has gotten SO close before! I watch her get up on her forearms and then pull her knees towards her chest, start to get up and then her legs slide straight out from under her and she begins scooting once again. I am in no rush though; I know she will be crawling everywhere before I know what happened!
She has really grown more adventurous now that she had gotten to be a very quick scooter. Earlier today she was laying in the living room on a play mat. I was sitting right across the room at the table. When I looked over she was happily lying on her back playing with a toy and when I looked up again, less than a minute later, the stealthy little girl was out of my sight! She had scooted all the way across the room and was pulling tissue paper out of a gift bag! I thought to myself "Oh my gosh! Where did Shelby go?!" I REALLY have to keep an eye on her now.
Oh, I have to share this story with you as well. Today Shelby was scooting down in the hallway trying to follow me since I had walked in her room. Well the cute little thing was happily scooting until something caught her eye........the electric wall socket! Why of ALL things is that so interesting....the thing that can really hurt you. She maneuvered right to it and reached. Needless to say I moved faster than the speed of light and snatched her up. "No, No Shelby! That will hurt you." As I said I have to watch her like a hawk now and she's not even crawling yet.
Well, I better go. Time to baby proof everything!
