By five months my Ashley was up on her knees and by five and half months she was rocking back and forth on her knees! Could it be? Will I actually witness one of my kids crawling before one? She is six months now and still doesn't actually crawl but she definitely gets around. And while she is getting around she is a BULLY! When she sets her eyes on something she wants... she goes and gets it. For example: Just yesterday Cambree had a bag of chocolate cheerios she was eating on the bed. Ashley rocked and scooted her way over there and literally took the bag out of Cambree's hands!!!!! Needless to say Cambree went ballistic! ( I secretly laughed!) Looks like someone is going to give Cambree a run for her money for queen of the household! Not more than 5 minutes later (After trying to put a cheerio in her mouth) she scooted over and grabbed some lego's Cambree was playing with. (Another melt down which included shouting of "MINE!" She is a bully to Buddy too. Ashley has never taken a pacifier. It is quite frustrating but Buddy's pacifier is his best friend. He always has it. Well I think it is a game to Ashley because she is constantly plucking that pacifier out of his mouth which makes him cry. I put the pacifier back in, move her away, and ..... she maneuvers over takes it out of his mouth again! (Stinker!) She also will take toys that Buddy is playing with right from his hands!! My little 14 pound girl is ruling the roost I tell you! She is the bully in a pink onesie!
Besides being mobile she also can sit up on her own which is something Buddy can't do quite yet. I think the problem Cambree and Buddy both have/had is that they have the worlds largest heads! I mean trying to get a shirt on either of them is a struggle because their head is so big. Now lil sister on the other hand has a tinsy head. I think it must be easier to scoot around and sit up if you don't have a big watermelon on your shoulders.
I look forward to seeing what the next few months bring for Ashley! She is definitely a mover and a shaker! She is definitely going to leave Buddy in her cute pink dust!
