On the Move

Makenna is starting to move around a lot on her stomach. She doesn't move forward, but she does move backwards. She is so funny because she scoots backwards and then gets upset that she is moving away from her toys. She has also gotten very good at moving in a circle. If I put her in the floor and go into the kitchen for just a minute and come back she will be facing the opposite direction that I put her. When we play with her in the floor she makes a complete circle several times in just a few minutes. She isn't crawling yet but I don't think that is far away. She pushes up on her stomach really well and has pushed up on all four for a few seconds several times. There have been a few times when she has scooted about half way across the floor. Although most times she doesn't cover a lot of ground, she moves a lot. A few months ago she hated being on her stomach and I had a really hard time getting her to be on her stomach for 5 minutes. Now she seems to really like it. Now we can play in the floor for a long time before she gets upset. She is growing so fast. Before I know it I'll be posting about her walking :(

Did you take any pictures of Makenna at Halloween? What did she dress up as? We didn't get too many trick-or-treaters (about a dozen) but I always like seeing their costumes. Jay's niece's little girl is about Makenna's age and she was an inchworm.
