People told us that once Des started crawling, overnight he would be all over the place. How true it is. Three days after he made his first forward movements, he was able to go from one side of the house to the other and back.
It's fascinating to watch. Maybe I'm setting him up for bad habits, but I've been letting him explore and try different things (short of eating garbage or touching a hot stove). He pulls books and DVDs off shelves, opens and closes cabinet doors, tears apart magazines, and chases the cats. It's a learning experience for me too... I have learned that we still have a lot more baby proofing to do.
These explorations are all fully supervised, of course. With camera at the ready.
The other day he made his way over to the entrance area, quite taken with the shoes over there.
Mama's brown boots. Cute!
