An object in motion...........

It's true an object in motion stays in motion until it is acted upon by a force, that object is now my son and the force is usually me trying to redirect him. Jackson started crawling last night and has been practicing all day.

Who did he crawl to first, you might wonder. Was it his Mama or his Daddy? Neither. It was his Aunt Candace! Keith and I have been dangling toys, laying on the floor, and practically standing on our heads to get him to crawl for the last few weeks. All we have gotten is a big smile and a baby rocking back and forth on his hands and knees. Yesterday the Beachum family came over for dinner and Candace laid down on the floor in front of Jackson and called him and he came right over. He just crawled like it was no big deal. I couldn't believe it. I guess he's a typical kid, showing off for aunts and uncles instead of mom and dad!

Here's a video taken this morning:


  1. Wa-hoo, Jackson! That's great. Now the baby-proofing starts. I don't think my log-roller will ever crawl because he gets wherever he wants via rolling. Enjoy chasing Jackson around.

  2. I love the little booty-rock he starts about twenty seconds in! Hilarious. And the doggy flying through at the end is terrific. So glad you didn't provide that spoiler in advance! LOL. Lookin' good, Jax, lookin' good!!!

  3. I like to say that he is stretching so he doesn't pull a muscle when he does the rocking thing. Annnnnnd if you listen closely you can hear the dog's nails on the kitchen floor before he actually appears!
