We have a Crawler!

Seamus Crawling

Floor time with Mommy

It's been over a week since my last post and I feel like there's a ton that I need to update but I can't even begin to remember it all. I do know that the biggest news is that our little boy is crawling! Seamus has been scooting around and army crawling for almost a month now but last week he started doing the real thing. Now he can sit by himself, crawl, and... wait for it... pull himself up to standing!! He started doing it a few days ago by pulling himself up on us during play time but on Thursday morning my dad said that he pulled himself up in his crib. Needless to say, on Thursday night Pat spent about 2 hours lowering the cribs to the bottom notches. He now pulls himself up on anything and everything including his sisters. On top of all of this Seamus got his second bottom tooth and is any day now going to have his 2 top ones poking through. Katie and Helena are still sitting machines and both like to pretend that they are swimming on their tummys on the floor but so far no crawling. Helena has perfected the inch-worm mode of transportation but Katie still relies on rolling to get around. Neither one of them have been able to get themselves into a sitting position yet but that seems like it's just days away. They are however, much more verbal than their brother. I like to believe that Katie now says Mama but Pat says that she says it to everyone. Funny that when Helena says Dada he thinks it's her just talking to him though! We also had cottage cheese for the first time which made a complete mess. I'm not sure they liked eating it but they sure liked playing with it! Katie and Helena have also both held their bottles for the first time! Neither one actual drink the bottle while they hold it, but it's a start!
