We have some amazing news this week! Liam started crawling this week!! It was little by little this past week, with one little schooch followed by another. Then, on Friday afternoon, he pushed a ball and crawled to get it. Every time he pushed it, it rolled a bit further, and he did an army crawl to get it. Liam went five feet that first time before getting upset. I have tears in my eyes right now just thinking about it. I am so proud of him.
Later on Sunday, when I was frantically child proofing the house, I set Liam down on the bedroom floor. I clearly underestimated what he was capable of, and was surprised when he started heading towards the hallway. I liked it when my Dad wrote on facebook that we should hide the car keys. It's all going so fast.
Liam and I are coming to Grand Rapids, the first stop in our tour to showcase his new move, next week. The Van Andel awaits us. :) We'll be coming in for just a couple days to see family and my friend Audrey's new baby, Theodore Alexei John Mahlie. We are so excited! I'm sure between my pictures of the new baby, my brother, and Grandma Powers we will have many many digital pictures next week.
Much love, and much more next week.
