I had to laugh to myself this evening.  I was in the kitchen and my 
daughter crawled in.  She has a funny way of crawling -- she goes just 
on her hands and feet, rarely down on her knees.  I immediately thought 
of this post I wrote last night saying she didn't mind hardwood floors 
and realized her crawling style may be her adaptation to the fact that 
the ground is so hard!  It wouldn't be the first time I've thought that 
second children really get quite a different experience from the first...
