Jujubee crawls. Eight months, expert crawling. She went from a very grumpy, mostly immobile blob to a much happier crawler, pulling herself into seated and starting to pull up on her knees baby basically in a week, I swear.
Now that Jujubee and Bean are both mobile, life’s harder. I’m adjusting. Bean is a little too close in age to treat Jujubee appropriately - tries to “help” her, ends up hurting or annoying her (mostly the latter). Jujubee, for her part, curiously grabs fistfuls of Bean’s hair, which Bean is not old enough to understand will happen Every. Damn. Time so she doesn’t avoid it. Etc.
There is a reason the gaps in nature are usually at least a little bit bigger than 10 months. Also, at this age with all my other babies I was considering being ready for another newborn - Boo was barely one when we got Bean, Bean was 10 months when we got Jujubee. I cannot add a newborn right now but the memories are all there so I’m having weird memories and ideas about it. But no, no newborns at the moment.
