Follow the Cracker

Becca has been really getting around this week. She's got this crawling thing down.

The other day I had put her down in the living room and then when to finish folding a load of laundry. I came back two minutes later and she wasn't in the living room anymore. Mara and Emily were in the playroom watching Veggie Tales and eating graham crackers. I found Becca in the playroom watching Veggie Tales with them. That was a long way to crawl without encouragement so I asked Mara....

Me: Mara, did Becca crawl in here?
Mara: Yep.
Me: Did you help her?
Mara: No, she just followed the cracker.
Me: What?
Mara: She just followed the cracker. (If she were 13 she would have added a 'duh')
Me: What?
Me: What do you mean, she just followed the cracker?
Mara: Just like this.....(holding her graham cracker in front of Becca.)

Becca followed her all over the playroom chasing the cracker. Guess we know how to get her walking now.
