What happens when you’ve got two parents that tend towards being a perfectionist before trying something new in a public way? You end up with a kid that will do all of the mechanical pieces of crawling in smaller bits without actually putting them together. This has pretty much described Hayden’s “attempts” at crawling up until this point. He would rock on all fours, he would drag his feet while attempting to “walk” his hands forward, he’d faceplant while pushing his legs in a crawling motion; all the bits and pieces required for crawling, just not all at once. Then, just recently, he decided it was time for all the parts to come together. He went from not crawling at all, to tormenting the dogs by always being right behind them.
On top of tormenting the dogs, this little guy just loves to laugh. If I were a stand-up comic, he’d be a great audience member. With a variety of physical and vocal cues, he finds me absolutely hilarious. On top of that, his laugh is so infectious that it’s nearly impossible not for me to laugh, which causes even more laughter to ensue. It seems every month I think that it would be great if he could stay this age forever, and then each additional month that passes I decided that now is the perfect age for him. I can’t believe that my little boy is growing up so quickly, and I just wish I could hit pause, at least for a little bit.
