Seven Months

Annabelle is seven months tomorrow, and she is definitely on the cusp of being an extremely mobile child! She wants it so badly and gets frustrated that she cannot really get around quickly. But she can somehow move from one end of the bed to another or from one spot on the floor to another. It's almost a's really like a shuffle/push/pull routine. She gets on her hands and knees and rocks. She then moves her legs but cannot quite figure out how to move her arms simultaneously with her legs. So she falls onto her stomach and pulls herself up again, moving forward somewhere in the midst of the previously described motions. When she sees something she wants, she gets a determined gleam in her eye, sets her brow, and proceeds to get there, somehow, albeit not very gracefully. But then again, if she's any child of mine, grace while moving may not be her best quality...
