Movin and Groovin
I knew it was coming... I tried not to encourage it, but the day came anyway.... the day Roman finally decided he wanted something bad enough to crawl for it. And what is this item you might be asking...his favorite stuffed animal, his move and crawl ball, the tunnel that is suppose to encourage crawling...no, no, no: the tv remote! We should have known, since he was like 3 months old, he has been amazed by the remote and how it lights up and is always an arms reach away. We moved furniture yesterday because I felt this was coming real soon (I just didn't know the next morning)so we moved the coffee table out of the way so there is alot of room. I was sitting in the floor with him, b/c his favorite thing to do is have a sturdy hand to stand up with, and I had the remote to my side. Well it got in his view and off he went, 3-4 moves and it was in his hands. So after freaking out, I did what every Mom does....grab the video camera and have him do it again! This time it took pushing a button and having it light up. Next time I had to put my iphone down beside it. We have learned that he only crawls for things he really wants. So far he has crawled for: the remote, cell phone, sheet on a table, coupon junk paper that comes once a week in the mail, the string to my camera, and the computer skyping my parents! Maybe tomorrow Mommy and Daddy will make the list!
