Trying to Crawl

Dovid has gotten to that stage where he'll get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. He wants to crawl forward, but he can't figure out how to do it. At one point he lunged forward and landed on his belly. He looked at me, and I smiled at him, so he knew that what he was doing was OK. He's getting there, though!

We decided to buy a lot of baby-proofing stuff, because we honestly having done anything yet. Yikes! Electric outlets are first along with putting locks on some cabinets. Of course they're not even close to that stage, but we have to get it done sometime! We also have to move the mattresses on their cribs to the lowest level since they're *this close* to sitting up on their own. I mean, they can sit up for a little bit if you sit them up inside their Boppy pillows, but they can't pull themselves into a sitting up position, and I don't think they can sit up very well without their Boppy pillows. Even so, you don't want any surprises...

You're right - those would be bad, bad surprises.

How exciting! They are growing and changing so much!

Go Dovid! Pumpkin's right there too- I keep trying to get her to take the next step & actually crawl from there- but she hasn't done more than an inch.

Ah- babyproofing... we have outlet covers in- that's it! Gotta get cracking ona few things!
