crawling

On the Move

It’s official, BOTH my kids are making their way around the house and discovering the many places that have yet to be baby-proofed. It sure brings joy to my heart to see Liam walking around so proudly and Karis crawling from room to room. As of 2 weeks ago Liam’s physical therapist said that he no longer needs his walker! That was great news!! Along with all that movement comes more work for mommy. Just when I think it can’t get any harder juggling life with them sometimes… it does! And yet I love it! They sure love opening the drawers and cabinets in our kitchen. Liam doesn’t care so much about what is in the drawer as he does the sounds the drawer makes when he opens and closes it. That’s my little drummer boy for you! Jeremy has begun to put latches inside the cabinet doors. He has had one cabinet left to latch for a few days now and Liam knows it, and grabs the knob and opens and closes it over and over…. ahhhh! Anyway here is proof of their curiosity…

And here is video of Karis crawling a bit to get a ball. She stops and does the sign for “ball” (you touch your finger tips together like you’re holding a ball) which right now is her clapping her hands. Then she does the signal that she needs help by raising her hand, which she learned from Liam. She is really picking up signs quickly and probably because we do them all day long with Liam.


Liam is Crawling!

Ok so here is the video. Liam has been crawling like this for a week now. Jeremy had just finished bouncing Liam on his lap… which is his favorite thing, and proceeded to set him down on the floor which he wasn’t too happy about. So that’s why he’s so expressive in the beginning of the video – he wanted to keep bouncing;). Then he gets his eye on the stick and crawls to it. We are so proud!! He’s actually crawling to many different toys today which he hasn’t done yet, so I think he’s about to be all over the place! Our physical therapist said she’s happy with the way he is learning to crawl in that he has seemed to skipped the army crawl stage, and the crawling on his hands and feet stage. It’s lots of fun to watch!
