Mini Me, after recently catching on to the phrase "creepy crawly" to refer to the mouse in a little tickle rhyme we do, one day called Little Lady's recent achievements in crawling her "creeping crawling", as in, "Mommy, the baby is creeping crawling again!" (yes, sometimes he calls her "the baby"). This new crawling phase changes our lives - ack - she's mobile and she's fast! It's also pretty fun, though. It amuses me to simply sit and watch where she chooses to go. Never before has she had this choice.
It's also really fun to crawl with her. Mini Me likes to go "creeping crawling" alongside her, or behind her, or attempt to lead her places by crawling ahead of her although she stops often to pull up on furniture, look around, and bounce awhile. I like to crawl on top of her, like a giant shadow hovering above. She'll kind-of go where I lead her but mostly we laugh.
She giggles when I squeal, "Left!" as we veer left, or "Right!" for a quick right turn and sometimes we just go "Straight on ahead.". Sometimes my directions and my shadowing are so funny, Little Lady will laugh a wheezing, honking, in-and-out, squealing laugh which stalls our progress but is oh, so fun to hear.
When the baby crawls, we all crawl!
