A reader writes -- is Lucy crawling yet?

Lucy is not crawling. What Lucy is doing is rolling onto her belly very adroitly, lying on her stomach, raising both her arms and her legs and....lying there. Lying there like she's waiting for a wave to come and carry her toward her destination. We call it floor-surfing, and La Lu is quite proficient!

Here is a picture of her celebrating being six months old. And yes, I promised myself I wasn't going to become One of Those Moms who splashes her wee one all over the worldwide web to be ogled and Googled by the world at large, but...well...dammit, she's just so cute! (Also, note sassy ruffly pants. Hand-me-downs from Cousin Olivia!)
