Sorry I haven't posted much this week! Gideon started crawling this week, so that is probably why I haven't had time. It all happened really suddenly. Two weeks ago he was still just rolling around and had no interest in crawling at all. Then maybe a week ago he started pushing himself backwards (and getting really frustrated because he wanted to go forward!), then just a few days ago started being able to go forward army-style. This morning, for the first time ever, he crawled forward on his hands and knees! Then he also learned just today how to go from a crawling position to sitting. So now he can also get himself to a sitting position! So much so fast! Yikes! He rewarded himself for reaching this milestone by finding the cat dish and helping himself to some yummy cat food.
The good news is my floors are clean, and will need to stay clean, thanks to his new mobility. I am really happy about this, actually. I lack discipline when nothing is "forcing" me to do something. I've done a lot of organizing lately, and all of my "hidden places" and random junk are now organized/gone, yay! I have a couple piles of things yet to find a home for on my table and desk, but there isn't much, and that's it! I also recently went though all the toys and got rid of a huge garbage bag full, and made a new system that will hopefully make cleaning up easier. I still want to go through all of my clothing and downsize, since I generally only wear a few things over and over anyway. It feels great organizing and getting rid of things! If only I just had more free time...
