Moving forward...

The Cams has started crawling. It was, of course, while I wasn't there...go figure! When Abby was a baby, I worked. So I expected to miss things - not that that made it easier. But now I stay at home; so I'm more than a little bummed that I missed the first crawl. Oh well...plenty more firsts to come.

Friday night, our girls stayed with the Bruces. They generously offered to babysit so that we could have a night alone for our anniversary. (Our anniversary isn't actually till the 28th, but we'll take a night alone anytime!) I told Leslie that I had a feeling Cami would crawl while we were away - she was just soooo close, I knew it was coming. When we picked them up on Saturday, Leslie suddenly said, "Look!" and Cami was hitching herself across the carpet. I asked if that was the first time and Leslie admitted that she had done it earlier that morning - "but only once!" We now have a mobile baby and I don't think Emma is too far from the same thing. Fun times to come at the Elliott house!

That is so cool that you've documented this. When your girls get older, they'd be thrilled to read about milestones such as this!

Oh wow, I am dreading when Aniston starts crawling. I can't imagine how hectic your life just became and will only become more so. Still, it is such a fun milestone and they are at such a fun age! Enjoy!!!

oh I am soooo not looking forward to that. I never really put Ethan on the floor so I'm hoping he doesn't get any ideas. I'm actually afraid he'll get run over if he lays on the floor. He doesn't really even feel the need to roll over yet. They are cuties! Can't wait to see you guys next month!!!

You know I missed Jiles first crawl also! So sad, there will be plenty more 'firsts' - no worries. They are darling little bambino's.
