Stella is On the Move-Crawling at 13 months!!!

If you know me, you know I've been worried about my girl not being as mobile as she should be (in my opinion). She didn't really roll over until 7 months and has been a pretty laid back baby and content to stay in one place. She never really squirmed much out of swings or chairs as an infant and just a few months ago realized she can roll over and sleep on her stomach in comfort in her crib (I NEVER put her to sleep or even lay her on her tummy unsupervised for fear of having a SIDS episode - Mom had a SIDS scare with me as an infant and has instilled the same treacherous fear in me). It's true, she hated tummy time but I was persistent in practicing with her...but maybe I didn't let her cry long enough on her tummy to really strengthen the erector spinae/multifidi and abdominal muscle groups - excuse the verbiage...I'm eyeball-deep studying for my written Pilates instructor certification exam which is Wednesday!

So as Stella's physical therapy appointment loomed near, she thought she'd outsmart us all and begin crawling before we made it to the PT! Here's my girl, crawling for her Daddy, of course this happened while I was teaching a Pilates class, but sweet Matt caught it on video and sent it to me immediately. Success, Stella!!!!

In baby #2 news, I am almost into my 2nd trimester...woohoo!!! This Friday marks 14 weeks, which I think officially begins the 2nd trimester. I am definitely showing and have been for weeks now. There is no hiding this baby any longer! This little one is about the size of a lemon now, weighing 1.5 ounces. I felt Stella first move at 16 weeks and if this baby keeps up with tradition, I'll feel him or her jumping around in just 2 or 3 short weeks! I cannot believe we'll find out what we are having in about 5 weeks! This is still so crazy!!! Keep little bean in your thoughts and prayers as he/she continues to grow nice and strong. And just for kicks, give Stella a round of applause for crawling...she's worked so hard and we are so very proud of this little monkey!
