A couple of weeks ago, I compared Ella to a little desert tumbleweed because she was rolling all over the house.  Now she seems more like an inchworm.  She is trying so so so hard to crawl, but hasn't figured it out quite yet.  She'll push up on her arms, but then she bends her elbows when she pushes on her toes and gets her little butt up in the air.  Up with her head, down with her butt.  Down with her butt, up with her head.  She's scooching forward, bit by bit...but not by much...yet.

It's so amazing to watch her try so diligently to crawl.  She is so determined!  So focused!  So intent on moving forward!  It makes me so proud of her...and reminds me that I need to try as hard at my daily task as she is trying now with crawling.  Here she is:

My recent blessing was a really nice gentleman who ran after me when he noticed that my debit card had fallen out of my pocket.  What a disaster that would have been if I had lost it!  So I really appreciate that God put someone in my path who took the time to alert me.


  1. Oh, that is so cute.

  2. So cute! Love the Bum Genius!

  3. That is the cutest video! Love the mommy commentary!

  4. I love the video of your little inchworm:) Such a beautiful, happy baby, and I'm glad the fall is long behind her. And I love hearing stories like that about the debit card. There's a lot of kindness in this world.


I love to hear what you think!
