Crawling – now with video link

Beth finally crawled yesterday! We’ve had plenty of attempts but she just didn’t seem to be able to get the forward motion down. Last night Eric saw her go three “crawls” forward. After that, we started trying to coax her into crawling further. By the end of the night, we got her to crawl halfway across the upstairs hall.

Alex was trying to help at one point by pushing her butt. We stopped him really quick, but it was sweet of him to try and help her. Then he came to the other side and sat with us saying “Come on Beff. Come on Beff.”, just like we were. It was a wonderful family moment.

  1. These are the moments to treasure for sure. Before you know it, you will be reading about YOUR grandchildren doing these same things and you’ll wonder where all the time went. Enjoy! Love Aunt Mary Ellen

  2. Truly a “Canon” moment. Too bad you don’t have a camera that takes video!

  3. I know, I know. I thought about it later, but at the time we were just too focused on encouraging her to crawl. I’ve tried a few times to capture things, but she stops doing them by the time I get the camera out.

  4. I don’t think there can be too many precious moments you share with your children. Enjoy them all for they grow too quickly and Aunt Mary Ellen is right, you will wonder where the time went.

    Love, Aunt Lynn

    P.S. The grandchildren moments are great too

  5. We actually got to see this video! I don’t know what was more enjoyable; watching Beth crawl, or watching Alex get in on the action and listening to his excited “She’s crawling, she’s crawling!”

  6. I spent some time last night figuring out if I could convert the really big AVI file created by the camera into a much smaller MPG file. Thus the movie above (using a trial version of a program). Unfortunately, the movie above won’t import into the photo website, so I have to play with the program some more.

  7. I’m glad you used the one with Alex and his excitement. It’s a double memory that way.
