Mobility, Sweet Mobility

After about a month of scooting backwards to move around the house, Evan made the leap into full mobility last Saturday. He was 10 months and 10 days old (just returned from a week in Florida) when he started crawling around the house. By the end of the day, he had explored thoroughly, pulling things down and reorganizing as he scooted along. His disposition has changed along with his new skill. Before, he would often grunt at us when he wanted something. Now, he just swings down into position and cruises along. His brother is excited for him, and has been crawling around with him a lot. During the week, I shot almost as much video of Tobin crawling and blocking Evan from the camera as I did video of Ev crawling. I still remember how much fun I had sharing video of Tobin crawling, so I decided to give Evan the same treatment. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

He's off & heading for parts unknown. Guess Allison will be moving right behind him for a while.

"Seussian Ode to Evan's New Skills"

Go, Ev, go!
Oh, the places you'll go!
Oh, the things you will topple and rearrange.
Oh, the toilet paper you'll remove from the spindle... and the pots, pans, and spoons you will clang!
Go, Ev, go!
The races you'll run with Tobin and Hannah...
The socks you will lose under the table...
The crumbs you will find with your little behind...
And the items you'll taste now that you're able
to reach them.
Go, Ev, go!
