Chloe Trying to Crawl to Nana

The girls and I went to Columbus to get Lynn today. She is staying the week with us while Adam is gone to his class at Lipscomb. I'm very thankful for that! I was really getting nervous about being here with the girls by myself with Emma having the broken leg. Well, when we got back, I put Chloe down in the floor to show Lynn her new yoga pose "The downward dog". Well, Lynn got her going and she was cracking us up. I don't know if she knew what she was doing but it looked for all the world like she was shaking her head no at us telling us she couldn't do it. I'm going to have to give her the "I am American" speech. That's what I tell Emma when she says, "I can't" Then I say, "you are an American. The last four letters of American are I can". I know it's cheesy but that's what my gymnastics teacher used to say to me and it has always stuck. Hmm, I wonder if he'd still say that to me about doing a back hand spring now? Anyway, the clip is kind of long. We actually cut it as much as we could but there was just too much cuteness to leave any more out.

Oh Dana, Chloe is SOOOOO far ahead of Anna Kate!! I had to call Michael in here to show him what OTHER babies are doing! Wesley was crawling by now, but our little girl just sits there like a potted plant! She doesn't even roll around like Wesley did. It's so weird how I absolutely DREAD her mobility (I don't like to think about how watching my kids can get any harder than it already is!), yet I see other babies making mobility strides, and I can't help but think, "Okay, Anna Kate, get with the program!" Chloe is a future gymnast for sure!
