The past 10 days have been huge for Lila! Besides figuring out how to crawl (she had only been scooting before), she has started pulling up on EVERYTHING and even climbed up a few stairs by herself yesterday!
She is definitely more content with this newfound independence. She can get to her toys on her own now, and she can explore all sorts of things she never knew existed before (like the insides of her dresser drawers, hehe). I have noticed, though, that she has started "circling" -- she'll crawl off to something and play by herself for a while, but she'll always come back to me and want to be held. I love that part.
You'll see from these videos that Lila uses her left knee and right foot to crawl. Adorable! I think it's so interesting that she started crawling at 10 months (August 30th, to be exact), since John didn't crawl until the week he turned 1. He did start scooting earlier than Lila, though.
