Crawling and Clapping...

Yay Logan!!!! He finally did it!!!! Ok, it's been like a week and a half, but Logan started crawling! (Video forthcoming...the camera is in Logan's room and he's asleep. Not chancing that one!)Last Monday, he randomly crawled from one side of the living room to the other and hasn't stopped since! Well, ok, he does stop. He stops to climb up on the furniture, or to hang on to your fingers so he can walk. Or occasionally, he'll stop to look at himself in the mirror.


We also made a breakthrough involving clapping! Last Sunday during General Conference, we spent the better part of the afternoon session teaching Logan to clap. He didn't seem to get it. And then Monday morning while I was changing his diaper, he was laying on the changing table and just started clapping! It was the coolest thing ever...he learned something I taught him! (Video forthcoming...again.)

And the last little Logan update: we've made progress on the eating thing. He likes to eat "Biter Biscuits" from Beechnut. He can feed them to himself and they don't melt the second they get wet. That way he can gnaw on them and chew them and, eventually, swallow them. And he's getting a lot better with the jarred foods. Zac was feeding him Apples and Blueberries the other night, and this is what I came out to: Daddy made him look like a Hitler Baby. Silly Boys!!!

Yay! He seemed like my son Kaden who just wanted to skip crawling and go straight to walking. Kaden finally gave in and crawled but just so he could get to the furniture to pull himself up and walk. :)

You should try one of those feeding sieve like things I've seen at target. You stick food in it and baby can gnaw on it until it is small enough to mash through the holes and eat it. I know I've seen them at Target but I can't remember what they are called. Some of the ladies in my ward really loved them. I think it allows the baby to eat some more solid finger foods without choking on them.
