Forward movement

For the past two weeks or so, Elora has been getting mobile, by rolling, wriggling and pushing herself around with her hands (generally backwards). I first mentioned it earlier this month. Well, yesterday she finally worked it all out and crawled forwards! The whole proper hands and legs moving in sync!

It's very exciting for all of us, especially Elora who can now get to her brothers' toys left lying everywhere. Won't be long before she's cruising (walking holding on to furniture) and then walking. Scary thought.

P.S. Last night Dan, Elora and I went out to dinner to celebrate our friend Yen Li's 29+ birthday (love that idea!) and we discovered that she has another two teeth! One is still just coming out. Two at the top (next to the middle teeth, which haven't come out yet). Explains why she's been waking at night recently and has been generally out of sorts.

Gee, it's sure unusual for someone to have two new teeth come in at age 29. (Sorry, just had an Eat Shoots and Leaves moment).

Tee hee. Sorry about that.

By the way, did you know that there's a version of that book for kids? Grandma bought it the other week for Dante. It's more about the use of commas, and has cartoons on facing pages illustrating the two versions of the sentences (misplaced comma and correct comma).
