I know it is absolutely ridiculous to be posting every time Isaac even almost does something new! However, I can't help it, it is just so exciting when your own little (or in his case, big) angel learns something new! It's miraculous to watch these babies grow from the tiny peanut that you first see on the ultrasound to a newborn baby that you can hold. Then before you know it, they are smiling and cooing, then laughing and grabbing toys. Then comes crawling and talking and walking and then they're running! It's sad to have them grow up so fast, but it is also so very amazing and exciting!
So, I digress, the point of this post was to tell you all that Isaac, after all the "almosts" has actually crawled! I have thought he was going to crawl everyday for the last month, but these slippery hard floors make it a little more difficult for him than I expected. He had to really work at it! He is carrying around a lot more weight than the average babe his age, you know! We were all in his room (on the carpet). I was skimming over a new book which was laid out on the floor, and Genna had just popped up and ran off leaving behind the Caterpillar book (this book has a finger puppet caterpillar on it). That's when he decided that book was worth the effort! He crawled to it, when he tired of that he crawled a little further to get my book. We kept putting things out for him and cheering him on. I'm sure I'll be posting video of his new feat soon!
I love to record what item motivated each child enough to actually crawl forward directly to it for the very first time. For Hannah, it was a lotion bottle. She was obsessed with them. For Genna, it was crayons. Big sis always had them, and we were always putting them just out of her reach to avoid a colorful mouthful of wax. I don't know why this is so exciting to me, but like I said, "Indulge me!"
