He Crept! Yes He Did!
This morning I put Jack in tummy time while I finished getting The Olders ready for school and out the door. Jack was enthralled with the laundry draping over the couch and kept staring at the legs of dark blue jeans draped over light beige pants. Contrast, ya know! And he wasn't exactly where I'd put him. Out of the corner of my eye I saw him inch forward! While I watched, he did it again. He used his elbows and arms to scoot himself toward the couch and the pants legs. And he kept doing it every ten seconds or so. Now I'm not saying he's ready to run a marathon, as he only traversed the space of perhaps a foot, but he did it himself! And when he got to where his view was satisfactory, he stopped. But HE DID IT! Maybe he will meet my goal of crawling by one year. Maybe not. But today, he has the power of locomotion! You go, Jack!
