Hands & Knees

Finally, Vera's reached pole position for crawling.

Not that she's doing any of it yet, but at least she lets us put her in this position...happily. Her hands have gained strength gradually but are still not strong enough to support her weight unassisted; they buckle if I take my hands away. But I'm sure that will improve with time.

Meanwhile, she has also shown signs of wanting to walk, can you believe it? When we hold her under the arms in a standing position, she will lift one foot. When we shift her weight and place it down, she'll lift the other. I am so amazed by this little girl.

Slowly surprise us, Vera. The satisfaction is sweeter for the wait.
