He's moving and grooving!

After weeks of being on his tummy and becoming frustrated when a toy was beyond his reach, Andy discovered how to crawl last night. As you can see by the smile on his face, he was thrilled with himself for figuring out how to get all of his limbs to work together to reach his goal.

This is where he started...

He has been pushing himself up with his arms, but until last night could only manage to push himself backward. Following bath time last night, Andy wanted to follow his big brother out of the room. He pushed himself up with his arms, scooted his legs under him, and there he went! Andy crawled all the way from my room to the hallway. Bobby was so excited he picked up the phone and asked who we could call...since it was pretty late, we told him he could spread the news tomorrow.

This is him making his way into the hallway where his big brother anxiously awaited his arrival!

It's hard to believe our little man is on the move. It seems like yesterday that we brought him home and he would curl up on our shoulder to sleep. He's such an inquisitive little guy. I have a feeling he's going to be our explorer...I guess this means we need to pull out all of child-proofing gear before he gets into things he shouldn't! :)


  1. What a beautiful boy. Granny is so proud of Bobby for being a supportive big brother.

  2. Maybe if we have another playdate, my babies will watch Andy and they will want to follow HIM! That's so exciting! He looks so proud of himself!

  3. How fun! Elisabeth just started crawling last week. Benjamin thinks it is the greatest thing ever, but I am sad. I want to freeze time so they all stay young! Say hello to everyone for me, we miss all of you and hope you can come visit IL soon!

  4. Way to go Andy!!! You will be running circles around your mama and siblings: )
