At 11 months, Charlotte has finally started crawling. I was convinced she wasn't ever going to bother, and go straight to walking. But while unpacking some boxes in our new house, she made her way to her Bumbo box which had pictures of babies on the outside.
She's still a bit tentative, but can easily make it across a room... usually aiming for a DVD to pull off a shelf, a plug socket, or a cable.
But she's still much more content to sit with her books - or "bookies" as she calls them. She's a real bookworm - sat with picture books, books with sounds, flaps or regular storybooks for hours. Tearing and chewing the pages less and less.
