ezra is CRAWLING
this week, I watched in amazement (and maybe a little bit of horror) as baby ezra made his way to a corner of the living room to demolish a neat little stack of books. I sat motionless as he proceeded to go after an unsuspecting collection of world globes in the corner (attempting desperately to fit each one in his mouth). now, a more seasoned mother might have swooped in with the precision and speed of a professional to remove said child from potential harm. however, I chose to watch. the beginning of mobility, it's something to see. the idea that he has discovered this and now has the freedom to explore the world on his own, it's deep. ava never really crawled. she sort of skipped right over that major developmental milestone and started walking one day so this is all new to me. and as excited as I am to watch my son in motion, I am also just a little terrified. gone are the days when we could just plop him down on a blanket surrounded by toys. my life has changed forever. this little cat can MOVE.
