Crawlin'

Again, a lot has transpired since my last post, most of which is blog worthy. You know, anytime you spend any amount of time in a hospital waiting room, you come away with some funny stuff. And then when you add pain medicine to the mix...it's just a barrel of monkeys. But I'll save all that for another post.

No, today's post focuses on the youngest of the Lane clan. Grayson is mobile! He started crawling last week. It's still a bit awkward, but he's gaining speed everyday. He started out with a one-armed army crawl. It might be a little hard to picture, but he would just push up with his right arm and kinda tuck his left arm underneath him. The downside to this technique is that every step he took, he wound up planting his face in the floor. Necessity being the mother of invention and all, he quickly learned to avoid the carpet burn on the face by using both arms. He still pretty much army crawls, but hey, he's got a little extra girth around the middle that poses a bit more of a challenge to get off the ground.

Of course, with this new milestone has come another one: discipline. I honestly don't know what the draw is to power cords. But, seriously, it's like a moth to a flame. As soon as his little rug-burned knees hit the floor, he immediately flocks to one of the hundred-plus cords that are attached to the many electronics that call our living room home. He has quickly learned the word no, and just as quickly learned that he can only get in trouble if someone catches him. His downfall is that it's difficult to act in any kind of covert fashion when you can only move at a speed of a mile every other day. And it doesn't help that he also has "Eagle Eye" Abby watching his every move, relishing in the fact that now Grayson is also getting in trouble.

Yes, times... they are a-changin' in the Lane house. We never had to babyproof anything for Abby...she never messed with anything. We're not going to be so lucky with Grayson...
