The combat crawler

We have a cute, cuddly, combat crawler in our midst. The Scout (I know, what an apt name in this context!) has started to crawl exactly like how the GI's do in those war movies. Upon siting an object of interest across the room, he musters up all his energy to combat crawl till the object is at arms-length. Then he stops and lunges for the object, stretches and tries to grab it with his finger tips. It is "oh, so cute" to look at but sometimes I feel like just giving him the object that he is vying for instead of having him put all this effort from all the way across the room. Thank God he doesn't seem to have inherited my lazy bones yet.


  1. Awwwww he sounds sooo cute!!

    It is such a sight when babies try to crawl across the room non-stop, as if trying to conquer some sort of a mission.

    Scout seems too cute!! :)

  2. Ah, a fun time! My son is 4 so reading your post made me nostalgic for the baby days!
    Wandered over from choxbox.

  3. Hi Nitya, Welcome! Hehe. And here I'm wondering where the really baby days went. :) Heading over to your blog now.
