This was a big week for Violet! She learned to crawl, learned to pull herself up to standing, and last night she slept 12 hours. That's a lot of changes for one week. The 12 hour sleep was from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. so I wouldn't mind it being shifted later by two hours, but beggars can't be choosers.
Now that she can sit and crawl, she can entertain herself for a while with toys without constant interaction which is really nice. She still wants you close by but you don't have to be holding her. It means you can actually eat a sandwich while she plays, or check your email. Just don't try to leave the room to go to the bathroom!
Here's some crawling videos:

She also tried sweet potato yesterday to a lukewarm reception. She likes carrots better for sure.
Coming up next: Violet turns 7 months and we travel to Oahu next month to visit Jenee. She's got her own seat, but I dread officially being "that person" who brings a baby on a plane.
