Up, Up and Away!!

That is all Natalie wants to do anymore. She stands at every possible thing she can get her hands on, and even the things she can't. This morning I heard a bang on the wall so I came around the corner to see what it was and Natalie was standing at the wall. I was completely shocked! She had nothing to pull up on and nothing to hold herself up once she got there. I'm so scared that she is going to be walking very soon. I mean I'm glad that she's growing and learning but where is my baby?! I think they go from newborn to toddler way too quickly. Slow down and smell the roses Natalie! There is plenty of time for walking in the future, for now be a baby and stay put! About a month ago Natalie started army crawling and I thought she was never going to crawl now that she knew how to get places without crawling. Well, I was wrong. About two weeks ago she started crawling. The first day she would go a few paces and fall flatly on her face, the next day she was across the room and now she's across the apartment as fast as I can walk. I've decided to enter her in a baby crawling contest at the Gerber Baby Food Festival. We'll see how it goes but I'm pretty sure she is just going to sit and wave or stare at all the other kids. I'm excited still.
