Guess who is CRAWLING?

Yes, you read that correctly! Ariannah crawled on her hands and knees for the first time this weekend. She is still military crawling the majority of the time, but is able to go about 5 feet at a time on her knees. She is progressing so quickly. She is also able to tolerate Derek and I making her stand. We have to support her under the arms or on her bottom....but she doesn't scream anymore when we do it. She is growing too quickly!

On a less positive note, Derek's brother was killed last week in a car accident. He was only 29 and was hit on the driver's side of his car by a drunk driver. It was a tragic accident and his family (especially his mother) is heartbroken. Please keep our family in your prayers.
