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!!!
