Over 40 mama — Adventures in poop, patience, and first-time parenthood

It’s the end of the world as we know it

The bean can now scooch.  As of this morning, she’s figured out how to use her forearms and toes in concert to nudge herself around.  Oh and she is positively TRIUMPHANT as she motors around the room reaching for her plastic duck (or my ratty old shoe, or uh, the space heater *ahem*).

This is something that’s frustrated her for the better part of the last 2 weeks.  She KNOWS she’s got to be able to scooch…but when she tries, her body reflexively goes into the doggie paddle.  Today, she actually made it work.

Yes, the babyproofing must commence post haste.  But in the mean time, the bean is aglow.  As is her mama. 🙂
