Matilda is on the move.
It's as if she woke up on Saturday morning, and thought "today seems like a great day to begin crawling".
There wasn't any 'testing', 'trying and failing', clumsiness.
As predicted, it was just straight-out crawling.
Baby Gates are up, and we are quickly learning what areas of the house need baby-proofing (also known as deep cleaning). Matilda seems especially drawn to the lint in our carpet and dust-bunnies under our TV stand.
