Mobility Makes My Monday!

Back at Cheryl's for Makes My Monday!!

First, check out my post at How Does YOUR Garden Grow and see my inner Julia Child!

Other than cooking up summer veggies, I have big news that is making my Monday. (drum roll...) Sebastian is CRAWLING!! Hurrah! I don't have a video of it yet because I'm an awful 21st century mom but I will get one before the end of the week. He isn't ready for a diaper commercial yet because he uses one knee one one foot to make forward progress instead of both knees. But he is kind of doing the left-right-left-right motion instead of just scooting forward inch worm style. And he shows very early signs of pulling up so I need to get the whole "child-proofing" thing. He is partial to electronics and their cords so I have to be a lot more careful and keep those things out of reach. More work for me but I'm happy that we are making progress!

Here he comes!!



In less exciting news, both babies can feed themselves their whole bottles, reliably so. This morning was the first morning (first time, actually) they both fed themselves. I hovered next to them while reading a book. Does life get better?

  1. Feeding themselves is huge news too! Enjoy the freedom of self-feeding paired with not-fully-crawling. You'll never sit down again! :)

  3. I loved when my kids could hold their bottles but be forewarned - they wil suck at using sippy cups because of it (because they are used to being reclined). We solved that issue for Ned with using straw sippy cups (still unresolved for Penny). Penny just started crawling very, very tiny bit. He's crawling so early you hopefully didn't have to deal with the screeching/whining that we do!

  6. So exciting, go Sebastian! Jackson never "crawled" much, he sort of army crawled and then he did the real thing for about a week or so and then walked!

  7. Congratulations, Sebastian! And WAY TO GO, Mom on the book reading while fostering independence! (Isn't it uncanny how appreciative you become of the smallest things when you've gone so long without them?)

    thanks so much for playing along with Makes My Monday, Nicole!

  8. Awesome! I love when babies do new things. It's so exciting to watch them grow and develop into their own person!

  10. WOOT! Logan did that one-foot-one-knee crawl as well...never actually did the "real" version - ever. He got quite fast too...

    And another WOOT! for the feeding thing. :)
