My baby is crawling!

My 10 month old baby Amanda, finally started to crawl today!
She has been moving here and there trying to crawl, but today she just crawled!
It's amazing to me how one day babies just start crawling, sitting, walking. God made it so perfect!

Does your baby fall asleep on her/his own?

I'm having a lot of problems with this. I remember saying when I was pregnant that I was not going to be holding her so that she could fall asleep..well I was wrong!! I just couldn't put her down when she was born, she would just lay there and you can tell she loved it (lying on my chest) So, now that's the only way she will go to sleep, if you carry her or if you lie with her in bed (my bed) she doesn't like to be alone, she wants to feel that someone is there.
We had this issue with our 1st daughter too, different but she wanted to be rocked to sleep, until one day we just got tired of it and began to put her in her crib and let her cry. (I know it doesn't sound me this was really hard for me!) but she was about a yr. old when we did this.
And it took about a week to get her use to this routine. I tried doing this with my little one, but it's so hard for me I can't do it, I'm WEAK!!

So, have any of you had this problem/issue? How did you deal with it?
