I’m off to bed, but I just wanted to write a few sentences to mark this occasion! Today, 20th November 09, is the day our wee Rosie finally learnt to crawl!
And how did we do it? With chocolate! Chocolate buttons to be precise. I know, I know – bad Mummy. But it worked! She has been rocking around on all fours for weeks now and just didn’t seem to realise that by moving her legs one at a time she could move about the place. So I sat at one end of the rug with a packet of choccie buttons and called her over and over until she tried to get to me, and the chocolate!
Boy did we make a big fuss of her! Now it seems there is no stopping her. After a few chocolate attempts we noticed her crawling all over the living room, reaching for all sorts of previously unreachable objects… like my laptop. Oh dear, now the fun begins!
Well done Rosie. She also said ‘Mookie’ today to the dog. Whose name is Mookie. (Not out dog, we are dog sitting).
