This baby boy won't crawl. I'm not rushing him, and I'm not really excited about him crawling anyway because that means life as we know it will be forever changed!! However, everyone seems to think he "should" be crawling and even though it doesn't bother me that he's not, he kind of is....backwards! It's more of a scoot, actually. He'll be laying on his tummy and want me or some toy that's not directly in front of his little face and then he just scoots back to get it. So cute!! I'm putting toys all around him to entice him to push off and start to crawl, and I know he will when he's ready. But for now, the backwards shuffle is pretty cute. I don't have a video of it, but you get the idea.

Yesterday we celebrated my mom's birthday and here is my baby with my sweet! Her first grandbaby!!

We also stopped in to see my grandma, however no pics because she was in her nightgown already!!! Carson sat right next to his great-grandma and just smiled and loved on her, so sweet!! We will be back visiting with her in a couple weeks and there will be lots of pictures then.
I'm sad that my week off ends today. I'm never really prepared for the feelings that come with having to leave Carson every day. I hate it. I truly hate leaving him. Any mom that works knows that feeling, and it'll never go away. But I know that by my going to work every day my family is taken care of medically. So I go. With kleenex:( And the up side of it is coming home to the best feeling in the world, my smiling happy-to-see-me baby who can't get his hands on my face fast enough. That makes it worth it!

Hannah never crawled...She mastered scooting on her butt. She was super fast at it too :)

Scooting backwards is the first sign of crawling..Babies USUALLY crawl backwards first, so WATCH out!

I vote to not worry about what everyone thinks baby Carson should be doing...let him go at his pace. He'll be crawling before you know it!

How nice that you had a week off.

And, good for you for not rushing the crawling...once they start moving they.never.stop!

I can't believe how big he's getting, either.
