Exciting News!

Today, we start a new journey! This is sooner {much, much sooner} than we thought possible, and I am so excited I can hardly contain all the JOY!

Adelaide is hitching! 

“Hitching” is when seated babies dig their heels into the ground and scoot on their bottoms. In two weeks, we went from a) sitting 3 seconds to b) sitting 10 seconds to c) sitting almost a minute {46 glorious seconds is the record} to d) sitting almost 30 seconds plus trying to move! 

We didn’t expect Adelaide to attempt this until her 2nd birthday. Research told us she wouldn’t even be capable until she turned 15 months. But, at 13 months old, our baby girl hitched 1/2 an inch!

Honestly, I was confused when she first started. Then, I got that look from our physical therapist…the look that says, “This is awesome. Are you seeing this?”


I was also awestruck.

Apparently too awestruck to even think of recording it. Or getting a photo. You will just need to use your imagination…

We may have a truly independent sitter by Valentine’s Day…but it looks like she won’t be sitting for long. {love}
