Last week we celebrated Eleanor's first Christmas. We all had a wonderful time and owe a big "Thank you!" to Eleanor's grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins for all of the cute clothes and fun new toys. She was truly spoiled!
I thought she might be crawling by Christmas, but she doesn't seem to be in any hurry to be more mobile. She enjoys sitting on the floor and playing with her toys, but doesn't seem eager to do much else. She can turn all the way around while sitting and scoot a few inches, and that’s good enough for her. She still hates being on her tummy, and when I try to give her time to practice crawling, she just cries while scooting herself backwards. I think our wood floors make it difficult for her to get any traction. Oh well. I really don't mind if she puts off crawling awhile longer. It means I can put off baby proofing and keep enjoying the freedom to put her down for a second and know she will stay in the same spot.
Here are some photos from Christmas and the last few days:
