Growing Like Crazy

I can't believe how much this kid is learning. Lily was fairly docile when we were still in China, but in a few short days has become very active. She can't crawl yet, although she is making great efforts. On mom and dad's bed, she is able to roll over without help, but not yet on the floor. I have a feeling she may walk before she crawls. She loves to pull up on your hands and stand up and walk with you holding her (like in the picture above). She plays peek-a-boo, pulling a blanket up over her face by herself and pulling it down. And it didn't take her long to figure out where the snacks are kept in the kitchen pantry. When she's hungry, she makes a funny little sound (a close approximation would be "NUM!") and points toward the kitchen.

lol...I thought the same thing before Chris started crawling, too. He used to love to walk around holding my fingers...and a lot of the babies I've worked with did, too....but they generally still crawl.....It's such an incredible joy to see little ones grow like that!
