On the move...

I mentioned in my 10 month post that Carter has been "crawling" {mostly backwards} for about a month. What I neglected to mention is that Carter would only crawl forward about 2-3 arm movements to get something that he wanted. And he would only do this when he thought no one was looking... sneaky bugger! Everyday he would happily crawl backwards like he was permanently stuck in reverse, so I never counted any of it as officially "crawling." Until this weekend.

On Saturday, May 23rd, Carter crawled for the first time... officially ;) He went from the sitting position and followed Kai around the room. He then proceeded to crawl the rest of the day {he followed Scott and Lauren's dog, Maddie, around their house when we went there for a BBQ on Saturday night! Maddie, having never seen a baby before, was so confused!} But, of course, every time I pulled out the Flip video camera, he would sit and stare at me. I have so many videos of him about to crawl and then stop dead in his tracks to smile at me and not move!

Well, on Sunday morning, I set up his favorite train in the living/dining room and caught him! So, without further ado... Carter crawling :)

Too cute! Oliver would only army crawl for the longest time, and finally about 2 weeks ago officially started crawling! Now the real fun begins!

Life was so much easier when they were not mobile. Just wait until he starts cruising around on the furniture. Life as you knew it is over. lol.
