Watch your step...there's a baby crawling!
look at him go! good job, baby! I think often of your story about your older boy, and how he would wake up at night to practice crawling in the bed. it's such a sweet and funny picture in my mind.
as for Oliver, he's doing baby pushups and superman-ing, he can pivot around in a little circle on his belly and get up on his hands and knees for a second, and sometimes he just pushes himself backwards on the hardwood floor (not on purpose, I don't think). he's surprisingly mobile for someone who hasn't figured out crawling yet!
aw, I bet it's so cute to see babies interacting with each other! my friend has a four-month-old who will lay happily on the floor, so we tried to take a photo of him and Oliver next to each other. Oliver tried to roll over on top of him, then grabbed his arm and dug his fingernails into it, and shouted in his face a couple of times. he was a good sport, though, and didn't even complain about it!
I noticed that he does a lot more squiggling around when he's naked, so I've been trying to give him time each day to do that. he's hilarious, arching his back and putting that big butt up in the air, then pushing back onto his knees. he's doing more planks, and today he even did a little downward-facing dog too! he can turn himself around on his stomach pretty quickly now, and he's pulling himself with his hands. I think he'll figure out soon that he can pull with his forearms, and then he'll be able to get the things that I place temptingly out of his reach! oh, and for the first time today, he rolled back to front to back to front again! he was so pleased with himself.
