Creepy Crawling

Kyle is now crawling. He started officially doing what I consider to be an early version of a traditional crawl on Friday, May 22nd at Chris and Teresa's apartment.

This is a video of his crawling, which is still mostly motivated by me or a cell phone, unless in another's apartment. I need to get a better video now that after a few weeks he has improved so drastically. But this gives you the picture of his approach to crawling.

I think in that video you can sort of see, but this is a very familiar face to us now...


It is a happy face and also means that he is huffing air through his nose. He uses it a lot when his is being thrown in the air, after something he wants, or flirting...


We cleared out the bottom shelves in our book case. Kyle keeps his toys there and soon we'll even have fabric boxes there, but he loves to crawl into the cubes to get things....


He believes in straight paths and loves to crawl under the coffee table to get to me...even when it means bonking the head on the way in and on the way out...


He also loves to crawl through his exersaucer to get to the music shelves in our bedroom....


He loves to move. We have ways to baby proof, but we don't have all we need to accomplish it yet. Honestly, some of it just required us to box up our possessions and put them in the storage closet until much later. But it makes me so happy that he is crawling and I love it. Although, he often is only crawling when he is crying and trying to get to me so that I will pick him up. Hopefully, he'll start to enjoy playing more than sitting on my feet.

I love his little grunts when he crawls. So cute. I also love that funny face that he does.

What an awesome face he pulls with breathing into his nose! it makes me smile. How exciting that he is moving so much. Good luck with baby proofing. If you have any good tips with the baby proofing let me know =)
