On the Brink

Our little boy is this close to crawling! In fact he may have technically crawled, but he's not necessarily getting places yet. He likes to get up on his hands and knees and rock, and then he may inch forward, or lunge, or he'll army crawl to a toy. It's so crazy to watch, he's growing up so fast. I feel like this next development is a big one. Sitting up is one kind of independence, but crawling is HUGE!! It's coordination and intention.....and my baby is almost there! I'm really starting to miss his little-ness. It's almost like it was a completely different baby that we had a few months ago, and now we've been given an upgraded bigger model! :) I guess we have the rest of his life to experience this feeling over and over and over and over and over.......

So here he is, in all his almost crawling greatness!

Crawling is a BIG deal. I'd say even more than walking!! It's the start of independence which unfortunately it's also the start of defiance and discipline. Gentle discipline of course :) but the days putting baby in one spot and having him stay there are gone....he will try to mess with the electrical sockets, he will pull all of your DVDs down over and over and over again and he will start to get many boo boos!! lol Charlotte isn't anywhere near crawling, and honestly I don't mind. It's a good stage though! Enjoy! And baby proof!!

Lydia here: Lila just started doing the army man crawl on sat... right after we put up the Christmas Tree. I know exactly how you feel! I look at her squirming along the floor, sitting on her own, holding her own bottle, pointing and waving, making choices on what toys to play with... and I can't connect her with the little baby I brought home from the hospital. I miss that little baby but I love my big baby too! I guess your right, we better get use to this feeling. :) When are you moving? Maybe Jeff can help you guys unload. let me know! lydandjeff@sbcglobal.net

That's so cute! You could totally see how frustrated he was by his lack of crawling ability.
