I DID IT!

I feel as though Colin's most recent big HUGE wonderful accomplishment has been overshadowed by the craziness in our household of all of the changes going on.
But...that doesn't change how proud we are of THIS little boy...


Yep, I broke out the "I did it!" shirt compliments of the Sanchez family at Three's a Charm AND Saving Sophia to highlight the fact that Colin is crawling all. over. the. place.



This new accomplishment makes all of happy...

...because Colin is free to get the toys he wants and come and find us! Last night I left him over in the family room doorway and headed to the bathroom. A few moments later, someone poked his head into the doorway! It's just amazing to see this new transformation!



It's funny because not so long ago (like a week or so before school started) I was a little upset that he wasn't yet crawling because I wanted him to be active with the other children in his class when going back to school. Well, he proved me wrong. He just decided he was ready...took off...and hasn't stopped since! I can't wait to see more of the transitions from lying to sitting, but he's still working on it. He'll show me one of these days!



Now that this little boy is more mobile, he IS getting himself into a bit more trouble. Like ripping one of the verticles off of our slider window today...

But right now, it doesn't even matter...we are just happy to see our little boy so happy moving all over the place!

We are so proud of your accomplishment Colin!! xoxoxxoxoxo

Congratulations Colin! That is a huge accomplishment! Who knows, maybe being in school helped him realize that he wanted to move! I hope you have baby proofed!

Oh, and I LOVE the backwards crawling! Sweet Pea only goes forwards. She pivots around to change direction.
