Guess who decided to start crawling today?! I have a little video of Hudson's new endeavors but for some reason I'm having issues converting the file (a Quicktime .mov file from my point and shoot) to a .avi file to edit and upload. Its so darn cute watching him crawl... he's so cautious and it seems that he is calculating every step... err... crawl. He's pretty proud of himself, as are we of course. He is also starting to pull himself up to things... so far only to his knees. At least he's realizing he has appendages down there. For awhile it seemed like he didn't realize he even had legs. He kicks and plays with his toes, but when it comes to standing, "walking" with us holding his hands, etc... he doesn't move his legs/feet.
So... I guess there won't be any more feedings like this going on.
And we'll have to get baby gates for the stairs. Oh... and his bed. Those of you with almost 10 month olds... are you cracking up to learn that Hudson's mattress is still at the very top rung... as in, like less than a foot away from the top rail? He seriously does not move around in his bed... he won't roll in his bed or sit up (he still doesn't go from lay to sit, but can go from sitting to laying). We lay him down to go to bed and when we go in in the morning he's still laying. Sometimes his head is shoved up against the rails, but does he think to roll to get out of that position? Nope.
Friday night I stayed up late and painted the guest room... it was so terrible looking. I still have a long way to go before its super cozy, but its definitely come a long way from last July!
**ETA: The bedding is from Ikea: Andrea Kakel duvet. Its not available at Ikea anymore but you can find it on eBay.
