In the past few weeks, Jillian has been hitting new milestones at a rather accelerated rate. First she figured out how to get from being on her stomach to sitting. Admittedly that was a rather exciting development since it meant that we no longer had to upright her whenever she grew tired of her belly and began howling. Then the crawling began, and her new found mobility was both exciting and exhausting.
But then, we turned out backs for a second and found her like this:
And a couple days later I came into her room to find her like this (yes we're lowering her mattress pronto):
Then today she crawled behind me to the baby gate at the top of the stairs. I looked over to see this:
She just has far more confidence than I'm comfortable with. She's not afraid to get hurt either (she doesn't enjoy it but that that doesn't stop her from trying again). I'm starting to grow worried that the authorities will be called because just as soon as one forehead bruise goes away she manages to acquire another.
