Ladies and Gentlemen... we have a mover

and a shaker. Brittain started crawling Tuesday. It's so funny to watch her. She has to really concentrate on which limb to pick up and move. She is quite proud.

It's funny how with your first child you are so excited for them to rollover, crawl, walk. But with baby number 3 you'd like them to stay immobile for as long as possible.
Brittain also started shaking her head "no". Mason thinks it is hilarious. He gut-laugh-dimple-giggled for over 20 minutes the other day in the car while Brittain was doing her trick.

Look at that adorable face! What a cutie pie. I love how your candid family shots look so stinkin' good!!! I so miss you photographing Natalie. Of course, we haven't done 18 month pictures and she's now 20 months old. Wanna come to Phoenix? :0)

I totally echo the wanting babies to be immobile forever! I think life also becomes so much busier, you don't pay attention and catalog everyday by the milestones reached and not reached... it's more like, "oh look, she rolled over... how old is she again? Is that good?"

Love the pictures. She is so adorable. :)

Did she go straight to crawling on asphalt?

I still held on to some of that rushing instinct with Whit--it seems like I still wanted her to reach those milestones quickly. It has been different with Caroline. I'm enjoying each stage instead of trying to hustle through them.

Kim- Phoenix sounds good! Could you hold off 'til say, January? 23 month old pics?!
mommyj-that made me laugh right out loud!

Hey Andrea-we must have been on at the same time. I wondered if anyone would notice she was crawling on the driveway. I figured it's not much harder than our carpet-less floors inside. And the lighting is so much better outside! :P It's all about the best photo op. Thankfully there were no battle wounds sustained.

She is SO CUTE! I can see it in her eyes, that little mischievious (SP) look thinking now as soon as your back is turned she can get into whatever she wants!) I want to snuggle her! Part of Mason's charm is being able to find the funny moments in life! Give em all a hug!

She is such a doll! I can't believe she's crawling already..didn't you just have her a few weeks ago :) Time flies too fast!

Carmen said...

I love those pics of her Dest! :) She is sooo stinkin' cute! I noticed she was crawling on the driveway...that's funny. ;)

And on a side note, I can't believe she is crawling either-holy cow! It's so hard to believe she will be 1 year old in just a few more months!?

she is beautiful...and I am sure you already knew that. Enjoy the time, it flies by.

Eric said...

Thanks for the advice! That is actually the brand we are using but it hasn't been too bad. But yes lots of laundry. I love doing our laundry though except the folding part. Of course! well that's all love ya

Sweet little Brittain! She is getting so big, in her own little way! I hear ya loud and clear on the mobile thing. Benson somehow thought he needed to keep up with his siblings and there was no stopping him. Sounds like Brittain has the same idea!
The next stage only gets faster, so try to enjoy the moment!

On a side note: Tell Avery that Brett misses her and asked; "when does Avery gets to come over and play I miss her a lot." Give them all hugs from us!

We love and miss you all!
