The day has come so soon

When I first had Addis I thought of all the things that were going to happen and how he was going to go through all these milestones that were going to be adventurous to watch and be a part of. Some of them came way sooner then I expected and others are still not here yet but this one is the one I thought I would be prepared for but I am not. I bought all the babyproofing things like the socket covers and the cupboard door stoppers but still have not made use of them.
I layed Addis down on his floor toy this afternoon and went into the kitchen to grab a drink and when I came back he was off the mat and on his way towards the coffee table. Addis was crawling, or more like shuffling his way backwards towards the coffee table and was having fun doing it!! it was so exciting to watch him lift his body and then shuffle his legs. I guess my mom said I crawled backwards too so its normal for some babies. So I moved the coffee table and some other things out of the way and watched him make his way across the room. His first tooth is also on its way out and now he can crawl.... I cant believe this day is here!! So I should really get on the babyproofing shouldn't I???

oh wow - I wish I could have seen that! As far as the backwards crawling goes - I'm sure he'll be fine as long as he walks in the right direction! ;P

next thing you know - he'll be yelling words for fun instead of screaming!

miss you guys - can't wait to visit london again when school is over :)
