Mobile Baby

We have a mobile baby!

Margaret started scooting this past weekend. She has been spinning in circles for a little while and moving forward an inch at a time by doing that. But now she can move forward without going in circles and, more importantly, she KNOWS that she is moving. And she does it with purpose to get things that she shouldn't play with. (keep in mind this is all done on her bottom...)

Cords. She loves cords. She loves getting our CD books (the big black ones) and pulling out the CDs to chew on (Daddy had a fit). She loves handles on our drawers and cabinets. It is only a matter of time before she figures out how to open them. We need to baby proof.

I can't believe she is going to be one tomorrow. She is such a big girl now.

Did you put her on the kitchen floor to see how fast she can go? Butt-scooting is a real art. There is even a country music song about it, "The Butt-scooting Boogie."

Happy Birthday Margaret and congratulations on your newly learned skill! Let the fun begin!
