Caitlin crawling

I was reading old blog entries. At eight months Ellie was still not crawling. Caitlin however has been crawling for 2 weeks. Since last Tuesday, Aug 5th. Commando-style- on her tummy with her hands clasped in front. She makes a beeline for all of Ellie’s stuff. Stuff she knows Ellie doesn’t want her to get near. Waffles the bear. “Mama’s scarf” (Ellie’s security blanket).

Ellie has been so difficult. And its mostly Caitlin related. Acting up in every way imaginable to get the undivided attention she used to get. Of course, the fact that she is going through an especially willful stage of her life doesn’t make it easier both for me and for her. I would definately go potty if not for moments like these:

Me: What are you doing?

Ellie: I am writing e-mail to mama.

Me: What are you writing?

Ellie: Thank you for making my day!
