Mobility Update

The Boy crawls! He took his first few 'steps' yesterday and hasn't looked back. While this is a thrilling milestone to reach, it couldn't come at a worse time. Right now we're up to our armpits in boxes, we've got hundreds of square feet of wall to paint and lots tasks that involve power tools, sharp implements and pointy bits. Not the ideal environment for a baby on the go.

Fortunately he uses his new found freedom for task oriented goals, like reaching a particular toy then sitting down to play with it, instead of exploring. So while he can move around, he still doesn't go too far - thankfully.
