Michael is taking off! Over the weekend he learned how to crawl, and it’s so crazy to suddenly see him ten feet away from where I put him. It’s still a kind of shambling crawl, one leg kind of dragging, but he does pretty good with it and loves that he can go wherever he wants and get into more things!
Also, yesterday he took his first steps!! Not even 8 months old yet, just like Lily - though Lily beat him by a few days. :) He’s been determined for weeks now to get moving, somehow, anyhow he can, that I’m really not surprised. It’s so cute to see the very determined look in his eyes as he steadies himself and then takes a couple of steps before loosing his balance. Today he took 4 pretty steady steps before he leaned too far back and sat down. It’s so much fun to watch him learn. Lily enjoys watching him too, and every time he manages a couple of steps she cheers and claps for him.
I’ll try to get some walking pictures, but for now here are some pictures of him crawling. He wasn’t in the best of moods when I had the camera out, so no smiles this time.
