She likes to move it move it

Teeny Tiny seems incapable of holding still.  She's always been this way, but it's getting much more pronounced.  Still not quite crawling, but threatening to do so every day.


She'll dance whether she's in her exersaucer, sitting to eat, while being held.  She's just a dancing machine!  While she loves music from the various toys and when I sing, if I turn on the radio, something about actual music seems to upset her.  As I type, she's pushing the buttons of a play table to make music and is dancing in her seat.

This is what I'm looking at right now.  Notice how she's a bit blurry.



If she's ever on a dance competition TV show, this is the video I'll be submitting of her dancing before she could crawl.

This is making diaper changes a major challenge.  She just refuses to hang out on her back.  The strength she puts into flipping herself over makes me afraid I'm going to hurt her trying to keep her on her back to get the diaper on.  The mobile above the diaper station is no longer interesting enough to distract her.  I'm doing as much of the process as I can with her bum in the air, but there's only so much before I have to flip her back over and hold her down to get that diaper on!  It's Diaper Derby over here!

Now Middie Biddie is playing it smart.  We've noticed that Teeny Tiny does all the work of learning new skills, she's been trying to figure out how to crawl for 3 months now, whereas Middie Biddie just hangs back and observes and then suddenly one day she is caught up to Teeny Tiny without nearly the same amount of effort.  She's recently been scooting backwards and is now up on her hands and knees rocking.  I suspect she'll crawl within a couple of days of Teeny Tiny even though she hasn't been working on it nearly as long.

Also, I've found that the girls love taking selfies.  When they're bored, I can pull out the phone, use the front camera, and actually get pics of giggly babies.  Yeah, the camera on the back is higher quality than the front camera, but hey, it entertains them for a few minutes.
