Delaney, 4 months old, May 2010
This afternoon I was startled to see Dell on her hands and knees, lurching herself in a tight circle on the carpet.

At just four months, Dell is so keen to catch up with her older sisters, that it won’t be long before she’s crawling properly — beating Brioni’s record by about a month!

She's definitely up!

A toy dangling out of reach seems to be all the motivation Dell needs to start moving.

I’m really pleased that I caught some of these first moves with the camera. As the poor, neglected fourth child, Delaney’s other, minor “firsts” may go unnoticed.
