Where's the Baby?

            I didn't want my baby to crawl so soon- I know, shame on me, bad parent, blah-blah.  As an experienced parent, you know that once the baby becomes mobile, your life is in for a BIG change.  This weekend, we played a lot of "where's the baby?" and "Get that (lego, my little pet shop, Wii remote) out of his way" and "seriously, bubba, don't you want to play with your toys on the carpet?"  It has been LOADS of fun:

           Back in the first week of January, we order a custom made carpet for our living room specifically for the baby to play on.  Unfortunately, it took the Home Depot longer than normal to get it made (long, horrible story that resulted in $$ off) and by the time we got it this weekend, he could care less about playing on it (see above).

           And I promise you, I don't just put my baby down and leave the room....  He was in our bedroom playing on the floor as I was in our bathroom getting ready for the day when I found him here:

I caught him just in time before I had to crawl under and get him out!

          But his newest trick left us baffled.  With all this new-found courage, the baby decided to pull himself up.  After his nap on Saturday, here is how I found him:

"Hey Momma! What's up?"

                  And Saturday night resulted in this instead of going to sleep.  I turned all the lights off and pretended to leave the room to see if he would do it again.  Yup- except this time, he stood up.  Guess who got a great night's sleep in the pack and play that night??  And dad had to lower his bed the next day.  Yet another step out of baby hood and into toddler world- too soon bubba!!!!

           Oh Bubba.  I love your curiosity.  You keep going!  No matter how much complaining I do, you are all worth it!!

He is just so cute! I know what you are saying about crawling. Ella didn't crawl until she was like 11 months old, and didn't walk until she was 17 months old. The doctor wanted to send her to rehabilitation but I didn't want her to be mobile. She was just content to sit around and play and I was happy to let her.

I love the picture of him crawling under the bed!

He is just precious! I love that age...cute fat little legs and feet, toothless wet grin, and a complete, head over heels kind of love for momma!

Awww. My last baby is just about to move OUT of the toddler stage. :-/

Bittersweet, isnt' it?

I too like the under the bed shot! When Gus stood up in the bed the first time my husband and I made it to his room in record time! They just move so fast once they start crawling! He is so cute.

Oh, I remember thinking please Trey start crawling, walking and talking. Then when it happened I wanted him to go back to my sweet little baby who just smiled.
I love the photos of the legs coming out from under the bed.
To tell the truth they are all fabulous photos.
Have a great day!

Becca, it has been so much fun looking at your blog. You baby is adorable. He is crawling now but will be running soon. My son is 16 yrs old, in 11th grade, and driving....when did that happen??

God Bless You!

WOW! Is he on the go or what?!
You go, Little Guy!

I did the same thing. I enjoyed the non-crawling time, too. Those pics of him looking for gold under the bed are a hoot!!!!!

Nice tile btw!!!

OhMyGoodness, Ian! Slow down!!! I can't believe he's crawling and pulling up. Babies grow up too fast! I love the pics though and his curiosity...that will take him far in the world! He is so adorable!!

He's adorable! That stinks about the rug! Boy are you gonna be busy now mama!

I LOVE the pic of him getting under the bed! I'm surprised he's got any traction on the tile. (I totally hear you about the slow down stuff...)
