On Sunday, Samantha will be six months old. For the most part, she is an incredibly happy baby with beautiful eyes and an adorable grin. But, of course, I’m a bit biased, since I’m the baby’s daddy (isn’t that what father’s are called now? If I’m right, gimme a fist bump).
We’ve been working hard to get Samantha in a sit-up-by-yourself position for the past few weeks. However, Samantha has set her priorities of self-improvement goals and crawling and talking seem to rank much higher than sitting up (”what’s the point?” she might say).
This movie clip is from a couple of weeks ago, when she was warming up, getting ready to launch. Special note: no babies were injured in the filming of this video.
And the one below, she takes her first crawl, about a week shy of being six months old. This does not make her mommy too happy, since she thought Samantha would buck the trend (set by Samantha who also crawled for the first time at less than six months old) and actually sit up for a couple of months before becoming mobile!
