the aforementioned progress...

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it happened. Leah started to CRAWL this week! She's actually pretty good at it and it all happened so fast. About two weeks ago, she started pulling up onto the furniture (thanks to a new toy I got her that was ONLY allowed on the couch). Then on Saturday, during that pretty sweet 59-0 BYU game, she just up and crawled. She still prefers scooting as she is REALLY fast at that, but it's coming along! Here is a video:

hip hip hooray. that video is sooo darling. especially when she's going to kiss ryan but he keeps scooting away so she has to come get him. soo cute. now, i dont' want to downplay your therapy, or prayers for that matter, because you know how much i love both of them...but i think the byu game may have had something to do with this little achievement, don't you think? hmmmm? was she inspired by the great success of her cougs? just maybe?:)
