My little man is officially crawling. Not just army crawling, but crawling crawling. It is the cutest thing ever. Wish you could see it. He gets up on his knees and hands and rocks back and forth every time, like he is trying to get up his momentum before he takes off to his next point of destination. Soon my little guy will pull up, start walking, and then go off to college. I know I still have a while before the college part, but that is how fast I feel his life is going. He used to be content just sitting in my arms all day snuggling. Now all he wants to do all the time is go exploring.
It is amazing to me to watch him as he figures out the world around him. One of his favorite things to do is bang his hand on any surface it can reach. He has figured out that different surfaces make different sounds. Unfortunately, his least favorite place to bang his hand is on the carpet. So he is constantly going into the kitchen or going by the front door to bang his hand, or whatever he can find, on the ground to make a lot of noise. Maybe he is going to be a drummer someday and is already practicing.
Isaiah is also fascinated by his toys, especially the ones that make a lot of noise. He figures out what buttons to press, wheels to turn, or knobs to pull to make sure that the noises kees coming. Aren't we lucky? Never a quiet moment in this house.
Another thing he loves is mirrors. He has a book with mirrors in it and goes crazy whenever he sees it. His little face lights up and he "talks" to his own image looking back at him.
If you are reading this and have kids, cherish the time you have with them. The dishes and laundry will always be there, but your kid(s) won't. They will remember the "quality" time with mommy and daddy, not how clean their house was as a kid.
