    Awesome job Jenna, it looks like you really went for giving her exactly what she needed and it also sounds she trusted you in the process. I never thought about crawling using 6 points before like that. It seems so basic, but from a motor control perspective, if you can't crawl, then harder crawing variations would be more difficult.
