thumbI recently tweeted that:

Daughter’s current mobility status: Can’t crawl, can’t sit up, but won’t necessarily be in the same place you left her 5 minutes ago.

Which prompted one wiseass comment asking if I was alluding to teleportation. The truth is that I don’t fully understand her current method of locomotion. It has to do with raising her feet, sometimes grabbing them, letting them fall to the side, and then rolling back over to her back. Somehow her finishing position is not the same as her starting position. When repeated multiple times, she can move quite a ways.

Just before I filmed this video, I accused her of spinning around on her activity mat like the minute hand of a watch. I turns out that, in the video, she does a full 180° in about 25 minutes. Don’t worry, I’ve timelapsed it because I know you’re busy.

Watch big in full HD glory. I love the lighting from the cloudy sky out the window.

    Hahahaha. I love it. She is wearing herself out but making progress for sure.

    I’m just proud to have been called a wiseass.

    I take it she’s not an ambi-turner?

      Actually she does rotate the other way sometimes.

      For the longest time (first two months?) in her bassinet, her favorite position was with her head turned to her right and her forehead smack up against the wall of the bassinet. But she’s gotten over that particular bias.

    Jeez, did you weld that sock on? Maggie’s socks have about a 30 second halflife…

      They are magic fairy socks. That’s the best explanation I can give. Most of her socks are off in two shakes of a lamb’s tail, but these particular ones could restrain Hannibal Lecter.
