9 months old today - She is officially crawling

I've seen Lucy shuffle herself around to move a few feet before today, but this morning I saw her crawl.

First of all we left her in the living room for a couple of minutes with Oliver, returning to find her on the other side of the room and trying to reach a ball under the coffee table! We were both open-mouthed.

A few minutes later we took her upstairs and sat her on the floor of the bathroom so Hayley could have a shower. While Hayley got a towel and sorted her clothes, Lucy got bored of the bathroom and I saw her crawl out of the bathroom and onto the landing. It was an unforgettable moment. She moved just as Oliver did at first: on one knee and one foot.

On returning home from work, Hayley reported to me that Lucy had ventured under the dining table and also, worryingly, had attempted to get under the television. Looks like it's time to start getting things out of reach again.
