So, as has been mentioned before, Elijah can get himself from Point A to Point B quite well through his adorable crab-crawling. He has also been cruising around using his cart for some time now as well. He can also crawl up the stairs on his own too! (Sadly, no pictures of that. Yet.) Starting a couple weeks ago Eli began to walk around without holding on to furniture or fingers. His confidence has grown and he moves around all on his own. I'll turn around to find him right behind me! The good news is he also recognizes that the wood and tile floor are slicker than the carpet because he stops, gets down on his knees and crawls then. Thanks to the advice from some friends, we also got him some great socks/shoes called Skidders that fit wonderfully and keep him from sliding around. I still have a couple months before he's running, but I have already started to prepare myself for it.
And now... On to the pictures!
