Tonight Emily and I watched you in amazement.

You spent about 30 minutes trying to figure out how to move your body across the floor about four feet. You were determined to reach the phone which I'd set on the floor.

I didn't actually know babies that aren't quite 8 months old could focus like that. And your task was made even more difficult by the fact that your sleeper has little sheep faces on the feet - complete with floppy ears. Every time you tried to stand or crawl, you were pinned down by one of the ears being under your other foot!

With a combination of trying to crawl, not moving, flinging your hips to the side so you could sit a little closer than you were before, pulling yourself to a stand and then hurling yourself toward the phone, you finally made it.

And then you sat there, clutching the phone, telling us all about your journey. You were so proud. And then so tired:
