And Now He Crawls

For the last few months, Ashton has been kind of crawling. Normally babies start out with the commando crawl where they pull themselves along with their arms. Ashton totally ignored this. He figured out that crawling entailed getting up on his hands and knees. He just could not figure out how to get his hands and knees working together to move forward. So instead of really crawling, he would get up on his hands and knees and kind of fling himself forward. Once he landed on his stomach, he would get up and do it again. It was slow and inefficient so he didn't do it for more than a few flops.

Well, the awaited crawling has finally started! He was at Grammy's house on Saturday and it all just clicked. And now, he crawls everywhere! I've mentioned before that Ashton loves making noises. When he crawls, he slaps his hands on the floor. You'll see it in the video. It's so cute!

Abby is finally up on her knees too! It's amazing to watch them learn new things. She really would prefer, however, to be walking, but she'll just have to wait.

Just think, Sarah will be home before you know it!
