Ready, set, go!

For awhile now, Grevin has been going backwards, doing "push ups," and getting on his hands and knees and rocking. He would lunge forward and face plant in an effort to reach something just out of his reach. Not any more! This last week he started putting a few forward movements together before falling and getting back up to try. He would maybe go 3 feet and would give up. This weekend he mastered going from his belly to sitting back up. Then on Tuesday, he decided to just go for it and he hasn't looked back! He crawled at Grammie's house to try to get into one of the bathroom drawers and he crawled all over his bedroom last night. I was trying to get him to go to bed (it was already 7:30 and past his usual bedtime) but he wanted nothing to do with it. He has started doing this thing where he pushes off of me and backwards to get down and out of the chair to stand or get to the floor. He kept doing it so I let him go to see what he was up to. He went backwards a couple of times, I think trying to sit back up, and then crawled across his room to grab a stuff lamb! The best is when he would crawl over to me to pick him up, he would snuggle for a second, then he was off again. I called Zippy in to watch and we were both cracking up because Grevin had the biggest smile on his face and he kept laughing. Too funny!!

Needless to say, we cannot take our eyes off of him! Zippy was hanging out with him in the living room and went to take a call(imagine that, Zippy getting a phone call!!). I heard some noises coming from the living room and Grey had managed to crawl across the room and wedge himself COMPLETELY under the pack'n'play.

I guess we really do need to childproof now...get those cords off the floor since that is his favorite thing to go after! I have been in denial. I was hoping he would stay little forever....

Woo hoo! I am so excited to see him this weekend...it's been so long! It's always hectic at parties, but make sure I get me a little Grey time :)

I am totally in denial! I'm not ready to childproof yet! Do you think it's wrong to tie her legs together so she won't crawl?

Yeah for the little biscuit! We're so excited to see his new skills.
