Not Exactly Crawling

I don't know if I can say The Baby is crawling, but if you put something she wants 4 or 5 feet in front of her, she'll drag herself with her arms and shove off with her toes until she gets to it. She's definitely not an immobile lump any more.

Current favorite things to chase include magazines and shoe laces. She's sort of like a kitten. Fortunately, neither magazines nor shoe laces sit around in her reach all that often. I'm trying to warn the older kids about the dangers to books left unattended and I'm policing the area for small toys more regularly.

Jay still enjoys gnawing and crumpling magazines and colorful ads. So far, he hasn't found anything with "delible" ink, thank goodness. I'm keeping the home-printed photos far, far away from him.

I think that qualifies as a crude form of crawling. Congrats!

As for Luke, he JUST started real bona fide crawling two days ago (at the ripe old age of almost 11 months). I've been reminding the girls to put Polly Pocket and her friends and tiny accessories and anything else they don't want completely destroyed away. We'll see....

Now, let the daily vaccuuming begin!

Well I'll be! What a cutie pie with a very unique crawling mechanism!
