Crawling. Yep, I didn't think Blake would crawl ever. Sure I thought when he was a bit older, but he started to crawl a bit yesterday. 3 weeks shy of 1 years old and he is crawling. I am so excited! Yes..it's much harder to keep track of him and I am ALWAYS on my toes telling him he can't bite wires, can't put his fingers in the socket, can't touch the lamp, but as Jason says, " I would much rather have an active child than one who doesn't do much." It has become much harder to clean, cook, and do laundry. I have to watch him at all times, but I am sure this is just a phase. He is getting more and more of a personality. He knows when he isn't suppose to touch something, he will look at me and touch it. Ugh..it's quite fun here...never a dull moment. When I tickle his feet, legs, or hands, and stop, he raises his other hand or foot to be tickled. It is really cute. He has tried to feed himself with a spoon..WHAT a MESS! I have to be more at ease about how messy he is when he eats. I give up on trying to ALWAYS have a clean floor by his eating space. He isn't napping much either. A total of an hour and half a day. I am trying all sorts of things out to see how he will transition to one nap. He takes a morning nap no prob...it's the afternoon ones he won't nap for. But I feel like he needs that morning nap. I have tried putting him down at 1:00 and he naps an hour that's it. Bedtime is still 8:00 pm. I am thinking about putting him down at 7:45 instead. I don't know. Any idea of naps and transitioning at all?
