Cause for Celebration

I am crying tears of joy here for yet another milestone achieved. In my previous post I talked about our efforts to motivate Crew to roll which is one step in transitioning from laying on his back to a crawling position.

Today, I layed him down on the floor.... on his back with his toys and left the room to do my online bill pay.

A few minutes later I could hear him dragging his toys across the wood flooring which was strange because I layed him down on the carpet. Thinking maybe he had scooted across the room on his back I entered the room and was shocked to see him on all fours crawling about.

I started laughing, cheering and crying. "Look at you, look at how BIG YOU ARE!" I exclaimed using sign language for emphasis. Crew starts laughing... victory written across his face. I pick him up and we hug.

Where's the icecream now!

    That's our Crew. He's not a quiter. He deserves hugs and ice cream even when he hasn't reached a milestone just because he is so handsome. Hugs and Kisses.
