milestones

all this chewing has finally resulted in some progress...

upon inspecting jillian's bottom gums i found that her first tooth has finally popped through the gum. i'm guessing a few more will follow quickly...as she has three more "buds" on the bottom gum. i'm thrilled that all the chewing, icky diapers and diaper rash, and drooling has finally paid off...but more than a little shocked to think she is old enough to have a tooth...

...or to do this...i mean, seriously!?

so far jillian shows the most motivation (by far!) of our three girls when it comes to mobility. she rolls all over...scoots herself backward and in circles...and now is getting herself onto all fours. elizabeth and kate never really did the "getting up on all fours" thing...they both discovered army crawling and were quite comfortable with that and then ever so slowly decided to crawl (kate didn't really even try to move until almost 10 months!--i know, that is quite ironic considering she never stops moving these days--or talking, for that matter!). so it is kind of fun to see jillian actually doing what the "books" say and getting up on her knees and rocking a bit occasionally. who knows...we could have another three months before forward motion...but then again, she could take off tomorrow!
