He's crawling!

Cheese Puff's mobile! He's been on the cusp of crawling for about a week. He'd go just a few inches, and stop. Now he's on the move, and into everything!
And now that he's figured out how to get around on all fours, there's no stopping him. The other morning I sat him in the playroom and snuck out to put something in the car. When I came back, he had crawled the 5 or 6 feet to reach one of our cat's (Slappy's) food dish and was happily munching on cat food. We've kept the food dishes separate for our skinny cat (Slappy) and our fat cat (Wally) so that Slappy is sure to get some food each day. Looks like we may have to rethink this and let Slappy fend for herself now that Cheese Puff wants to supplement his diet with her food.

This morning I again sat him down in the playroom with Baby Plum and gave Plum strict instructions not to allow Puff to eat the cat food while I dashed off to take a quick shower. When I got out, I found that Cheese Puff had passed up the cat food for other adventures -- he had crawled a good thirty feet out into the kitchen and was crying (perhaps he was lost?). What was Plum doing during all this? Standing two feet in front of the television -- transfixed and oblivious to everything else.

First of all, I really like that photo - the framing - the slight sense of movement - it all contributes to idea of 'first crawls.'

And it sounds like they were some pretty ambitious crawls. I'm excited for you all! I love crawlers!
