Ack!

I took Dylan to the doctor's yesterday for a follow up. He's off the inhaler and just has to finish up the antibiotic. While we were waiting I put him up on the examining table to play with the crinkly paper (he loves that sound). All of a sudden he starts crawling on his hands and knees (instead of the army crawl). I almost passed out! I figured, maybe it's because of the paper that he's doing it, that it's helping him along. So, when we got home I put him on the hardwood floor and he started to crawl! It's kinda funny, he moves his hands and just drags his legs behind him. I called Marc and asked him when he'd be home, he was on his way so I told him I was glad he was on his way cause his son was crawling! When Marc got home, we took Dylan into the family room (all hard wood - no rugs) and he had a blast! We put him in the walker toy and his toes are just now touching the floor so he was able to get some motion. Then we put him on the floor and not only did he crawl but he surprised us both by pulling himself up on the exersaucer! Our boy is growing up!

  1. Isn't it funny what gets them going. X crawled when I put the necklace I would wear and he would play with on the floor. He hasn't stopped moving.

    Isn't it nice that you not only probably have a baby book to write all the milestones in, but a blog as well. Did you know that there is a site that is working on being able to put blogs into booklet form?

  9. Jeeze, I've been so out of touch! Sorry Dylan was sick, but thank goodness he doesn't have to use the nebulizer anymore. And WOW, he's crawling already?! Congrats, Dylan, you're mobile!
