The time has come
It's taken several days of "why is this harder than it should be?" before I've noticed that it's time. Gone are the days of Isaac sitting happily where ever I put him while he plays happily with whatever I've given him. Twice today I've asked Andrew "Where is Isaac?!?" Once Andrew responded "He's right there." But the second time Andrew said, "He's gone!"
New goal: KNOW WHERE ISAAC IS AT ALL TIMES!!!
He's not crawling in the traditional sense. But he gets around. It looks sort of like he's swimming. And pretty quickly despite his awkward, free-styling strokes. Today he swam into his brother's room to check out the box of little cars. While Andrew and I were playing "Let's Pop Bubbles While You Attempt Number Two On the Potty!" (which might, if I were more up to it, merit it's own blog post), Isaac swam up a step to join us in the bathroom.
From today forward the to-do lists are getting slashed in half. The Mommy Radar is set to "High". The time allotted to redirecting Isaac is going from "Little to No Time" to "All of his Waking Minutes".
As I remember, this is a very, very long stage.
Let the baby proofing begin!
