And Away She Goes

Well, hurricane Hanna is on her way and it's pouring down rain here, accidents all over, and the worst is yet to come. All our plans for the day have been ruined. Doggy swim day at the pool, our first year we were actually going to be in town for it, obviously not happening. A trip down to Aunt S.'s for a barbecue, roads too dangerous and who knows what it will be like later when the real storm and high winds roll in. So, we're hanging out at home.

The point of this post isn't the hurricane though. After practicing for weeks and getting closer and closer, Ellie learned how to crawl yesterday. It was a few tentative forward moves with her knees in the morning, and by the evening she had gotten pretty good at it (see video). Today it's pretty clear she's figured it out and there's no stopping her.

That is absolutely adorable! The thing that gets Max every time is the remote control -- he'll do his semi crawl for that. We're getting closer to that all out crawl that Ellie seems to have mastered...any day now!

And yes, I agree that the duck is going to get annoying. But, don't all those noisy toys? :)
