Dear Molly,

Five days ago you started crawling backwards a bit. Just a few steps here or there, nothing crazy.

Yesterday you crawled forward!

I was happy for you since you have been trying to move for a while now, but it also makes me sad. 

I don't want you to grow up. I want you to be a baby for a long time.

Eight months old is too young to be getting around.

Stay put. Stay little. Those are orders.

But, I will admit, you are a cute little crawler. 

Sincerely, Lori
