Here, There, Everywhere!

LP is on the cusp of crawling. Lest you think this means she stays still, let me enlighten you. This means she gets to where ever she wants to go, using whatever means available.

For quite some time now LP has been an expert roller. She rolls to the left, she rolls to the right, she rolls on hardwood, she rolls on the rug. She also has figured out how to aim for things and get to them by rolling. She will pivot so that she is sideways to her goal and roll to it. Once there she will sit up (it amazes me that she is still so 'healthy' considering the kid does more crunches a day in order to sit up then I have done in my entire life), pick up whatever she was shooting for and promptly stick it in her mouth.

Last night she rolled into the corner in our living room to where this crazy, heavy, noisy, ball popper toy (thank you CA family! we will get you back) was hiding. She knocked the thing over and proceeded to push it around. When I "caught" her, she looked up at me sheepishly, grinned, and went right back to attempting to destroy the lovely hardwood floors.

I am anticipating that once she does actually start crawling I will collapse from exhaustion on a daily basis. I have no idea how I will be able to work from home with an omnipresent infant making her way through every square inch of our home.

What do you mean you don't like the ball popper?
