Today, Benjamin spent more time walking than crawling. He is now 17 months. All I can say is, finally.
We went to the YMCA pool and while Megan and Gavin were swimming in the “deep” (3 feet) end, I chased Ben around the shallow. He would start at the top of the pool and run until the water was about 6 inches, and throw himself face-first into it. Then, he would crawl until the water was over his head and swim for a foot or so, when I would fish him out of the water, waterlogged and smiling. I would turn him around and he would crawl out of the water, and do the whole thing over again.
