The Little Things - The Catapult Crawl

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Robert Brault

James -
James has started crawling and we love to see him crawl. Haylie used to do the typical army crawl where she would use her arms to drag her body along. James has made up his own signature crawl and we call it the catapult crawl. He pops his butt up in the air by lifting himself from his knees onto his toes, and then catapults himself forward. So far it seems to get him where he is going but it doesn't always make for the smoothest landings.

Haylie -
Haylie's newest phrase is something that she picked up from us, of course. When we ask her questions she often mumbles or whines the answers, "uh-huh," so we have to remind her to answer the question so we can understand, "yes or no." Now when ever she asks us a question it is followed by her demand for a "yes or no."

"Can I wear this shirt? Yes or No??"
"Can I have a cookie? Yes or No??"
