Despite what this picture conveys, we actually had a really good day today. I happened to catch both kids in a tiny cranky moment that quickly passed.
Owen has started to crawl! Or bunny hop, really, but he's getting around. He gets his knees tucked under him, moves his hands forward, and then bounces the knees back up again. So cute! He takes a nose dive often when he hops forward a little to forcefully, but he's really starting to move. Ultimately, he would really like to be walking and sometimes thinks he can. He would much prefer to be standing up either holding our hands or onto the edge of something than any other activity (besides eating). Then he's moving around the edges or wanting to be walked somewhere. He tends to let go a lot, forgetting that he's only got the balance of a 9-month old. Sophie's running around all over the place, so why shouldn't he? I'm sure he'll be chasing her in no time. Then we may have more frequent, not so fleeting, cranky pants moments to look forward to.
