Follow me!

Owen is really cruising now when he crawls. He can go pretty fast too! Sometimes his legs go faster than his arms can and he face plants, but for the most part he does pretty well. We have been playing the "Get You" game with him for about a week or so and he loves the excitement that you are going to scoop him up and tickle him. He just tries to crawl faster and faster to get away. It's really cute!

On Wednesday at Little Gym I was talking with a new mom and Owen crawled over to his friend Margo. Margo is crawling now, but she not cruising around as fast as Owen is yet. When Owen got tired of being over with her he decided to crawl back to me, but not before he turned around and looked right at Margo and waved his arm at her to say, "Come on Margo, follow me". Margo's mom Kathy was beyond shocked. Yesterday when I was playing with Owen he was crawling away and he did the same thing to me about 3 or 4 times. He would crawl a couple times and then lean on one side and wave his arm at me to follow him. He must have picked this up from me because when I want him to crawl into another room I say, "Come on Owen", and wave my arms for him to follow. It really is amazing the things babies can pick up on.
