Who Needs Crawling?

The time of mobility has arrived. Kit and I cheered for Gunnison's amazing feat of rolling not just one direction-no,no-but BOTH ways! Three cheers for our athletic child! Now, the cheers have stopped...I don't believe we will ever experience Gunner wowwing us with athleticism again. Who needs to learn how to crawl when you can roll everywhere? What would be the purpose of such exponential effort? Gunner rolls from one end of my house to the other (almost). We have found him stuck under the dinner table-I layed him down to play in the middle of the living room-we have found him wrapped around the end-tables, under the computer desk and on the cusp of entering the kitchen. I have watched him reach for an alluring toy just out of his grasp and when he figures out he can't make it, has rolled in the attempt to retrieve said toy. He makes us laugh with his antics (and ready smile whenever he sees us looking at him). Kit reminds me to enjoy the simple rolling and remember Gavin was walking at 8 months (he by-passed crawling almost entirely)...uggh-how much can be accomplished in 2 months? Let's hope not to the point of walking!!!

What a little athlete you have on your hands! We'll have to send Georgia over and she can show him how it's done ;) In the mean-time, enjoy your little roller. He sure is cute!

How sweet little Gunner is! i can't believe that he is that mobile!! That's what you get when he sees big brothers whirring around above his head. He has no time to be a baby, there is much, too much to do!! He gotta get movin'!! :)

Oh, what a cutie! He has grown so much since Christmas. I'm sure it's from all the nutrients derived from munching on the couch! I think you had better buckle your seat belts, you are going to be in for some ride!

I can't believe Gavin walked at 8 months! Neither one of my kids walked until they were 15 months old. I think Ethan was saying full sentences before he was walking. ;) I love the picture of Gunner eating the couch.
