It’s official, Jude is crawling. He has been trying so hard for such a long time and then two days ago he figured it out. It was early in the morning, 7am ish and we were just hanging out in his room playing when he got up on his hands and knees and crawled across his room to check out a toy. Then he played for a few minutes and crawled back to me. It was awesome! Of course I went and woke up S with the exciting news and we spent the next 45 minutes trying to get him to do it again, and whomp whomp, he wouldn’t do it. So S had the genius idea to grab my cell phone, which he is obsessed with getting his hands on, and we showed it to him and then put it a few feet away and bam, he crawled over to it. Now he is crawling all over the place. He is very slow so far at it but he does a pretty perfect standard on hands and knees crawl. And it also seems that in learning to crawl he has really mastered going from on his tummy back to sitting up or from being on his back to sitting up. Of course he is also pulling up on everything. I think that today or tomorrow S and I are going to go get supplies to finish baby proofing the house, before he picks up speed!
