To our great surprise, M is classically crawling! He does not crawl as fast as he scoots, but he is trying it out. He began day before yesterday, as he was heading over through the connecting hallway to visit his Grammy and Grampy.
What a wonderful mouth of teeth he has now, too. Six are fully in (all four top incisors and the two bottom primary incisors). What a dazzling smile. His bottom right secondary incisor is beginning to poke through. It seems to be more uncomfortable that the others for some reason.
Marshall is becoming increasingly mobile. He gets around very quickly by scooting on his belly (like he’s in boot camp), propelling himself with with his right foot. The left foot is either dragged or sticking up in the air. It is very cute to watch him!
Because of this increased mobility and his ability to sit up so well now, Adam turned the cosleeper into a ball pit, by converting it into it’s play yard form and filling it with 300 brightly colored balls! The baby plays in it a little bit, but is still a little unsure. We took our bed off of it’s risers, losing some storage. But, we wanted it to be closer to the floor so that the risk of injury from falling off would be lessened. Then, we side-carred a twin bed between the wall and our queen-sized family bed. This is a great way to sleep! So much more room now.
