So close!!

Steven is so close to crawling!! On Wednesday, it was TJ's day off and so we went with some friends to a haunted house. When we were about to leave Steven with the babysitter, he starting getting up on his knees and rocking back and forth. We seriously considered staying home at that point because we were convinced he was going to crawl for the first time while we were gone. Well, that didn't happen, but he's been getting up on his knees all the time! It's great. And, as you can see from this video, tries to push himself forward, but hasn't quite figured out how to move his hands, too. I'm working on it with him, though.
Also, we broke down and got one of those jumperoo things on monday. It was a little expensive, but I think it was a great investment. Steven loves it! I can seriously leave him in it for like 45 mins and he's perfectly happy. Also, it was the cutest thing... The other day I had him in it and I was running around trying to get some things done. All of a sudden, I didn't hear him jumping anymore for a few mins, so I came to check on him. I found him just staring out the window at the kids playing outside. I don't know why, but I thought it was so cute how mesmerized he was by what was going on out there. I took a video of it, but realized it wouldn't be that exciting to anyone else since it's just of him staring out the window. So here's a video of him jumping in it instead.

He's going to be all over the place next month when we see him. he'll be all over that basement with all the other kids!

oh yay! that's an exciting thought, kelly! I'm so excited for him to actually be able to interact with other kids.

Yeah, great videos! Although I have to admit that I was a little distracted by the hands in the background in the last one... =} He's so stinkin' cute!
