Oh my goodness! CRAWLING!!

I would have to say this is probably the first milestone in my son's life that I wasn't all that excited about when it happened! Well, maybe the first couple of "crawling steps", but it was all downhill from there! The house we are in right now is really hard to put up boundaries in, especially down stairs because there are not really any narrow doorways where I would be able to put gates up in. So, my day consists of a lot of chasing Caleb around and taking things out of his hands, or MOUTH! BUT, in saying all of that, it is VERY cute to see him squeal and laugh because he is able to move from one end of the room to the other to get something he wants. And let me tell you, when he gets his "eye on the prize" there is no stopping him. Although, he hasn't quite figured out yet why his head hits the coffee table every time he tries to go under it. (he's usually trying to get to our chiuaua, abby, who weighs like 3 lbs!) He will be 8 months this week! I can't believe it, time is flying so fast and before I know it he will be walking and talking too!

My heart lept when I saw the picture of Caleb crawling! The pure joy on his face thrills me. I also see the hint of that little develish glint in his eyes as if he is saying "hah, now I can go after all those little things Mom doesn't want me to get a hold of!" Knowing how you will be chasing after him and constantly saying "no" reminds me why little ones learn that as one of their first words!
