1, 2, 3 … Crawl
Yes, Alex crawled for the first time this afternoon. I was at work, so I missed it, but Stefanie filled me in. And Alex was kind enough to provide an evening performance so I could see it. Although it technically is crawling — Alex is on his stomach and moving forward — it might be better described as inch-worming. He kind of bunches up his body and pushes himself forward. It’s really, um, interesting. Still, it’s crawling.
Alex is also now just leaning on us to stand and take a step or two. We don’t have to actively hold him. This just happened today, too. At this rate, he will be ready to run in the Beijing Olympics in September. Look out, all you runners whose names I don’t know. Alex is gunning for you.
