I better post this quick! Rider is ALMOST about to crawl. Praise God. The time has come and I am SO excited for him as his adventure in this life is about to begin!! Every kid becomes an explorer as soon as they learn to crawl and I just really eat it all up. I think it’s SUCH a fun phase! Most people see it as a nuisance. You have to watch/chase them more. There is A LOT of dirt that they might try to eat. And there are a lot of things that are dangerous for them to get into. I love it.
Not the dangerous things. Ha. The FREEDOM they gain!
Yes, it’s more work for me, but I think it’s so much fun!! I don’t mind the chasing and dirt eating. It just means that they will wear themselves out and will take a good nap come the afternoon. So I thought I’d post these pictures quick. I took these pictures yesterday, at which point he hadn’t figured out how to get up on his knees. Although he was close.
TODAY. He got up on his knees and figured out two things. One: that he could rock back and forth. And Two: that he could crawl backwards. Forwards is next, obviously, and I don’t anticipate it being long before he figures that one out!
Watching them grow is the best. I wish I could keep them at age 1 forever. I’m about to have two boys within my most favorite age range ever. And I know I’m going to blink and it’s going to be over and they’ll be older. Savor it all mammas. As busy as I am and as much as I AM anxious for them to be older for certain things, I do know that this season will be over so quickly and I’ll be fondly remembering all the fun and not so fun things wishing they were small again.
They get big fast.
For now, I’ve had a new ‘wind’ of appreciation/inspiration in remembering and learning to actually be present. So today, I’m glad in the fact that my littlest man is learning how to become the world’s next explorer.
