While Andrew was in Ireland, I spent the week up in Sacramento hanging out with my parents and other family members. Like usual, Blake seems to conquer a milestone whenever Andrew isn't around. First, it was rolling over during the Olympics and now he learned how to crawl forward. The best part about this milestone is where he decided to crawl for the first time. We were shopping at the Folsom outlets with my mother, Aunt Sandra, and Uncle Larry. I got tired of holding him so I put him down on the sidewalk in front of a store. Any normal person wouldn't put their baby down on a gum stained, dirty sidewalk, but I guess deep down I knew it would be magical. There Blake was, picking leaves out of the cracks in the sidewalk and then he suddenly put one hand in front of the other and crawled for a few steps. We were all so excited and cheered him on. Cheers to my baby growing up!
Here is Auntie Amy giving Blake his first dancing lesson:
Now for the crawling. This was Blake crawling later in the evening:
