Most of you already know this, but I haven't made the official blog announcement, so here it is—Trenton is crawling!! He finally figured it out last week and has been cruising all over the place ever since. I love it. As a mom, having a crawling child brings its new challenges (toilet bowl brushes, phone chargers, kitchen cupboards—all within his reach), but it's also a relief because our boy is so much happier exploring the world than when he was clumsily trying to roll in his desired direction.
AND he can PLAY! It's hard to describe how you "play" with a nine-month old, but he seems to actually get it when we play little games with him. (Ryan is probably particularly happy with this development.)
More bonks and pinched fingers? Most definitely. But that also means more cuddle time for Mom. :) We love our adventurous boy.
