Jackson has done it! He crawled, yeah! We have been trying to encourage him to do it for a month now and he was so close. He would rock back and forth and then get frustrated and breakdown crying. I felt so bad for him. But then yesterday, we were over at the Stoker's and he wanted these Christmas bells that were too far to reach so he just decided to go for it. Let me tell you, it wasn't a slow creeping crawl either. It was a I'm gonna get those bells as fast as I can crawl. With his little arms and legs a turning he got those bells. Then we tried to see if he would crawl to other things. I kept moving the bells away and he would chase after them. At one point I was thinking to myself is he a baby or a dog because I was making him fetch after every toy I could find. He really got excited when Grandpa Stoker put out his phone for Jack to play with.

*On a side note, Jackson is no longer to play with our keys because he slobbers all over the key remote and the batteries wear down so we can't get into our cars. It has happened 3 times in the past 2 weeks.

By the time the night was over I think he got sick of crawling after things because he was not doing it anymore. He would just get mad at me when I moved the toy farther away. I guess it is his right to be mad, I would get angry too if I went after something and it just kept getting farther and farther away, lol.

Congrats to Jackson!!! It really is so much fun once they can get around, although it becomes that much trickier to watch them!!!
