Full On Crawling

Well, it didn't take very long for Grace to go from crawlingish to crawling.  She's on the move now, and can really, really motor.

"Target identified.  Pursue and eat XBOX"
I love her crawling determination and form.  Grace only crawls when she sees something she wants, which is exclusively something she's not allowed to have like a shoe, a glass or Carrie's graded essays.  Plus, her single-minded drive and that one armed, dragging the body move she uses reminds me of the T-100 from the end of The Terminator, after it's been crushed in the factory but keeps relentlessly chasing after Sarah Connor.  She can't be bargained with. She can't be reasoned with. She doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And she absolutely will not stop, ever, until she tries to eat something fragile, important and/or dangerous.


  1. If you hadn't written about this video, I would have thought she was a he and that "he" is upset which is why he's screaming. But now I know she is just letting out sounds the same as tennis players do when they hit a ball with large intensity. However, this was 1 year ago, and Grace is already on her feet, isn't she? What is going on with your family nowadays? How was your Christmas? Have a happy 2012!! Hugs, Flora
