Not ready for this

The days are numbered. My time with only one mobile baby is dwindling away. I can feel it. 

Luke is not crawling just yet. He finds a way to get to something across the room if he wants it badly enough, but you could stare right at him and not have any idea how he did it. 

So I thought I had some time.

But then this past weekend, when we were traveling, Luke did something unexpected. He pulled himself up in his hotel crib. 

Oh, dear. 

And he's been doing it ever since.

The couch.

The play yard.

Toys. Very unstable toys.

We all know what this leads to. One thing. And it's no good. At least not for a mommy who would like her baby to stay a baby and have only one kid who can run around, getting into everything, terrorizing the animals and breaking through baby gates. 

Thankfully, he's still extremely unstable and can barely hold himself up for two seconds before falling (should I say 'thankfully' when it involves falling?). He's not even close to standing unassisted. 

And let's keep it that way, buddy. 

Your sister went two months between pulling up and walking. Can we make it at least three for you?

If it makes you feel any better, Jax started pulling up 3 months ago and is still only taking a few steps on his own:). I know EXACTLY how you feel. I get so sad as I watch Addy scooch around - I laughed when I read that Luke can get from one end to another but you swear you can't figure out how! That is exactly what Addy is doing! lol! I guess part of mommyhood is being sad about our babies growing goes by WAY too fast!

Maybe he will take after Lucy and not walk until he's 18 months old:) He He:)

I just love seeing pictures of your babies, even if you don't have time to type, please post lots of pics often!!!
