Here is a little video of Lumin on the move. This is especially for Grandma, who has been itching to see little Lumin crawling :) The past month has been big for Lu--she's cut two teeth and she finally figured out how to crawl forward after months of frustrating backwards scooting and practicing her "downward dog" yoga position.
Lumin had her 9 month check-up last week and everything looked good. She's almost 28 inches and she weighs 22 lbs 4 ounces. She's technically a little behind on her gross motor skills because she isn't pulling up to standing yet, but her doctor isn't too concerned and neither are we since we know how focused she's been on crawling efforts. She's still well within "normal".
We've really enjoyed the past few days. Lumin's been doing all sorts of new things such as clapping, waving, and crawling to a leg and tugging to be picked up. It's so fun to watch her figure things out and learn to communicate. Our 2012 is off to a great start and we wish you all a Happy New Year!
