Happy birthday to Adam

We celebrated Adam's 29th birthday on Saturday.

Is this what an early mid-life crisis looks like? Maybe Adam was just feeling left out after watching the girls attack their birthday treats. No, this is just how Adam eats while no one is watching. What a goof. Happy birthday sweetie, we love you goof and all!

Crawling? ...fine, I'll try it already

come to mama

Slowly but surely.

So, there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Our little Stella is finally crawling at almost 13 months of age. Yeah Stella! She started last Monday while I was at my sister's house. I think she liked the wide open spaces. Stella has really taken off this last month in the gross motor skills category. At her 12 month doctor visit she was testing right on track with everything but gross motor (physical skills), which she was testing at about a 9 month level. So now Stella is not only crawling but she can also sometimes pull herself up to furniture. She may be slow, but at least now she is showing some progress and trying hard in the process. I thought this was never going to happen, and that she may go straight to standing and walking , which is okay, but crawling is good brain exercise. I am stoked! I know I am over a week late to post this, but poor little Stella's been sick with a persistent fever, so she hasn't even felt up to practicing her new skills. But as soon as she is herself again, I'm sure she'll just keep taking off and pulling more tricks from her sleeve. Let's cross our fingers.
