Crabby

M – Mango is developing rapidly. Her latest favorite pastime is dragging herself upright using her face and the couch as supports. We then proceed to reach for her slowly as if we were going to tickle her. She then squeals and tries to scramble away down along the front of the couch, with arms and legs akimbo (hence the allusion to having crab-like movement). Quite funny to watch and almost impossible not to smile as she shows such delight in the simple joys in life. 

The couch is a 'safe zone' right?

 She also is enthralled with the cat (making it difficult to feed her when the cat strolls past the highchair, causing her to whip her head back and forth as her wide eyes search everywhere around, including  – as much as she can, under and behind the highchair, craning her head all around as she tries to find where the cat went).

Umm. Thought I saw the cat - too bad bowl of food got in the way. Drat.

Another pastime she seems to enjoy is being pushed up and down the hallway on her ‘car’. Of course, she is none too steady sitting there, so keeping her upright has caused more than one sore back.

Lookit me everybody! I'm driving!
