I now have 2 mobile children!

About a week ago, Jonas began scooting.  He's still not fully crawling, but it's not a scoot either.  Instead of moving one leg and then the other, he moves both and then his arms while using his belly in between.  It looks like a frog leap or a butterfly swim motion... so cute!

Since being able to get around, he's become a much happier baby.  He doesn't mind being put on the floor because he's no longer taunted by the toys just out of reach... now he can go for them.  The only problem is that when he goes for Marco's toys, we hear Marco repeating "no, brother"... we're trying to teach him to share.

This morning, I called him from the kitchen when it was time for breakfast.  It took him a few minutes, but he came all the way up to the gate and waited for me to scoop him up and put him in his high chair.  He was so proud of himself!

On top of being able to get around, he is now more able to play with other babies.  He can interact and almost keep up with babies his age.  He's much happier this way!

People always look at him funny because he's SO tiny, and yet doing all these "big baby things".  I just smile and tell them he's a lot older than they think he is.  My small and mighty boy!
