So, when your baby is tiny and immobile, you get used to it.  In the beginning, you can swaddle them and lay them down wherever you want.  They won't move.  (Far from meaning that this is easy to take care of them at this point, it's quite hard.  FYI.)

Flashback:  One month old in the beloved bouncy chair.  Not moving, by the way.

Then, you reach the point where they start to roll around.  This is pretty easy to deal with.  You've had months to prepare.  You need to be more careful where you put them, but you can be sure that there will be no fingers in sockets.  You can't reach those just by rolling.  So, keeping the baby in the room with you is safe.  Just keep an eye out.


Flashback:  7 months old.  Sitting, rolling, thumb sucking.


Jack has introduced us to the Wild World of Crawling.  I promise to post some action pics when he gets really good at it, but right now he's doing something that we've nicknamed the Zombie Crawl.  He lays on the floor and uses one arm to pull himself forward.  Legs aren't doing much; other arm isn't doing much.  I give him points for creativity and sheer determination.  And mobility.

Today, Jack showed me that he (1) knows where we keep the toys, and (2) wanted a different one than he currently had in his floorscape.

Mom, I want a new toy.


Are you going to help me, or take pictures?

Yes!  Doggie!  (Thanks, Carrie!)
Awesome.
I did it!

Yup.  Time flies when you're having fun.

Hope this finds you well.

  1. Yay for Jack!
    Eli did the army crawl thing forever... I didn't think he'd ever get his belly up and off the floor. Now, he's standing on his own and may be crawling before the end of the year!

    Enjoy the very impressive-sounding Zombie Crawl! Outlet covers will be needed faster than you think!

  2. The world of crawling is a fun one! Jonah was a bear crawler and now that I think back on that, I wish I would have captured more video of him bear crawling. You can never have enough crawling videos. :) Can't wait to hear how this zombie crawl evolves.
    Take care!
