Another first

Drake is working so hard to crawl. He can get himself from his stomach up onto his hands and knees, and then he just rocks back and forth. When he tries to actually crawl, it's more of a lunge forward that ends up with him back on his stomach. However, if you move his legs for him, he will move his arms to crawl forward and can "crawl" for several feet that way.

Last night when I put him in his crib, he immediately rolled to his stomach and pushed up onto all fours. I left the room to get Lucy and when I came back in, he was on his knees, holding onto the rail of the crib, and smiling the most pleased-with-himself smile! You could have blown me over with a feather. I have never seen him pull up to his knees before. It wasn't perfect, he hadn't quite figured out how to walk his knees in towards the rail, so he was kind of sagging in the middle, but he had figured out a way to reach up and grab the rail and pull himself up!

Another feat I am hoping to see a lot more of!
