He crawls!

August is 9.5 months old now, so we figured the whole crawling thing would happen soon.  Starting about 6 weeks ago, he would wake up in the middle of the night, rocking back and forth on his hands and knees in the crib.  Then, during the day, he would tentatively reach a hand out for a toy just out of reach...and settle back down onto his butt.  We had a lot of almosts that told us he was getting so, so close to becoming mobile.
One day, at play group, August took a couple of quick steps forward with his knees to get to a blanket; it was so close, though, it looked more like a fall that took a while and he caught himself before his face hit the ground.  Could that possibly make any sense?  Anyway, the next day, it happened.  The little man could crawl around the living room for a minute at a time, then a few minutes, and now it's as though this is his job.  He is getting so quick and confident!  He's been crawling steadily for about 3ish weeks now, and I cannot believe how quickly he seems to have mastered movement.  We're so proud!

  1. Multi-talented -- crawling, "talking" -- no wonder you're proud! He crawls just like Nancy did -- one knee, one foot! Too cute!
