Old Summer Post...Coffee Table Exercise

These pictures and this video were taken during the summer when Eli was just learning to cruise around our furniture. Now he's cruising SUPER FAST and even letting go to take a couple of steps. It's fun to watch him learn and master new things, but it's kind of bittersweet, because it makes me realize that my baby boy is quickly growing up. I keep begging him to stay little for just a while longer, but he is intent on growing up on me. He just seems so little to be able to move around furniture as quickly and agilely as he does. He's still not completely steady (although, he thinks he is), but he does a pretty good job of getting around. When I was trying to get Eli to practice cruising, I discovered that Gerber Puffs made walking around the coffee table in the living room much more fun. I scattered puffs all around the edge of the table and Eli had a great time walking around it, picking up puffs, and gobbling them up. It was so funny to watch! I figured that this exercise would help him master his new skill even more. Before long, I'll be posting the walking video. Sniff, sniff :'( He seems to have grown up and turned into a pre-toddler overnight!

I'm with you...puffs have SO many uses! I did the same thing to get Avery to pull up on her own!

you are such a creative mom! =) GREAT idea (and they were so perfectly placed.....)! i LOVED that video!! i can see so many similarities in the boys... it's so much fun for me to sit and watch brody feed himself (especially at that age, but even still now) because he isn't really QUITE sure where the food is in his hand so he just shoves the whole thing up there and hopes he gets the food. i am always amazed at how perfectly God made us and how perfectly we develop--i'm in awe of His creativity and design everyday when i look at brody!
