I am going to go ahead and say that Evelyn is now officially crawling!  This past Sunday, Troy set up a crawling “obstacle course” in our living room with the intention of teaching Evelyn to crawl.  I was pretty skeptical, but he plopped her down in the middle of the floor and sprinkled a few toys (and the dog) just out of reach around her.  She eventually managed to pull herself forward on her belly, kind of like an army crawl.  Every day, she’s gotten a little bit better at it.  And today, she managed to motor right across the room to get to Isadora.  She is obsessed with Isadora.   It’s too funny.
Of course, after the initial excitement wore off, I realized that we really have to get on the ball now when it comes to babyproofing.  I can’t help but think of an old Calvin & Hobbes cartoon where Calvin says something like, “hooray, we’re dead.”  That’s kind of how I feel about Evy crawling.  Great that she’s mobile and terrible because she’s mobile.
