And i am very happy! She is crawling (every which way possible), pulling up, cruising (not very well, but trying), standing alone with the help of furniture and mommy is so pleased. She seemed to have a problem finding out how to get from point A to point B with crawling but then one morning after several weeks of standing there and going back and forth in the same place she saw her favorite toy at the end of the room and she lunged forth so quickly i nearly lost it. After that everything else came in matter of days/i mean in matter of 1 day.....LOL The prob is that now whenever it's time for sleep i pull her out of crawl mode and put her down and she whines...and cries....sometimes mad sometimes really sad. I feel bad for having her cry, but i know she is tired and she knows too (rubs eyes, and yawns) it's just that she is so happy to have managed various types of mobility (shows as she laughs each time she cruises, crawls or pulls up) that there is just NO time for sleep. But sleep must happen or else more whinning comes along. Anyone else with similar problems? Any words of wisdom?

Bella just started crawling a couple weeks ago as well and I hate it. Not only is she constantly on the go, her sleep is messed up too. Thankfully I still swaddle her so she knows that nursing+swaddle= sleep and she usually goes to sleep easily, its the waking up. She went from waking up at 11 to waking at 8. It sucks, lol. I am so proud of her for reaching this milestone but I could have waited on it, personally haha.
I have noticed that Anna started fighting sleep as soon as she started scooching. It's been a few weeks and she is still doing the same thing. Just as I thought she was starting to sleep better for naps, this happens and throws it all off. She still sleeps about the same at night, it's just so much harder to get her to sleep. I have no advice, if I remember from my first daughter, it's just a phase that will pass.
