on march 9, jakey started crawling. i havent been able to keep up with him since! he was late to the party, but is more than making up for it. he chases the cats, finds little tiny pieces of nothing to put in his mouth from freshly vaccumed carpet, and loves to go through my purse or the diaper bag whenever i am careless enough to leave it on the floor or within reach.
he is curious about everything. bubbles are a favorite new toy, as well as anything that he can unstack, take out of a box, or otherwise destroy. sometimes we set up small towers of blocks down the hallway and let him just crawl along and topple them as he goes. he can play this game for a really, really long time.
we are still loving the cloth diapers and amber teething necklace. my hippy ways need a place to come through in my child. he eats everything he can get a hold of, including olives and mushrooms, two things that i avoid like the plague. no allergic reactions to anything so far, so i count myself very lucky.
i cant believe the teeny tiny little guy we brought home to our apartment in connecticut is an almost one year old who lives in kansas now! everyone says how the time flies but it flies faster when its my own kid. wow.
