Crawling? Seriously?

So for about a week or so I have been giggling at (I mean sweetly encouraging) BBZ while he gets frustrated and aggravated when he tries ever so hard to reach out and grab whatever object is just out of his reach. He sees it, reaches out, puts all of his little energy into his arms and legs to do everything he can to get a little closer to the object, gets his arms up, his feet ready and GO! Then he crawls backwards. He gets even farther away from the object and gets so mad! We have been trying to get him to go forward, but until now he always ended up going the wrong way. Well tonight I was cooking some stuffed peppers (which by the way turned out pretty darn good for my first try) and N had BBZ on the island. BBZ leaned over to grab the fan remote and crawled forward to get it! We were both so surprised that N rushed him into the living room and laid him on the floor to see what would happen, and he crawled! He is still a little rusty, but it is clear that he knows what he is doing, and now that he has figured out the basics, I think he is well on his way to mastering this skill. We tried to videotape it, but our batteries were dead. We'll try again tomorrow!
