Crawling, Standing, and Cruising

Here is a little update on the progress around here. Bridget has been army crawling for about a month and a half now. She loves it! She gets around everywhere. Ethan had not mastered it until recently. He has other ideas of thing to work on. He can not successfully get himself into sitting, this has taken much practice and persistence. The poor boy spends most of the day trying to do it all himself and he does not give up until he masters it. Bridget is still working on it with the help of her physical therapist, Julie. So, up until a few weeks ago I have had only one baby on the move, it was tricky but do able, boy did I not know what was coming. Ethan started army crawling and then about a week later he started full crawling on his hands and knees as fast as he can, with no problems at all. And he was everywhere!!! That day I ran around after him, moving everything that wasn't nailed down to the floor. By the end of the day I was exhausted. That evening I was replaying the day to Joseph, feeding Bridget her bottle on the couch, and up crawls Ethan, puts his hands on the top of the couch and boom standing!!!!! Not only standing but side stepping he way towards me! He is now pulling himself up in everything and loving every minute of it. I am glad to day that this week Bridget is now pulling up to standing as well! I don't have a picture yet but I'm working on it.

Wow, I thought it was bad with one baby crawling and standing. I can't imagine two doing it at the same time!
