Sometimes you just need the right motivation

Dorian loves cell phones. So much so that we gave him his own to keep him from always eating ours. But the other night when I was on my way home from teaching, I called Russell. He had me on speaker phone, and when Dorian saw Daddy's cell phone light up and heard Mom's voice coming out of it, he just decided he had to have it.

How cute! How old is Dorian? I'm so glad that we both have blogs so we can keep track of each other.

He's quite the little athlete, isn't he? So cute, Bonnie. So cute!

I keep trying to put videos of Rachel and the boys on the blog, but can't figure out how to make it work. Do you have any suggestions? I follow the directions, but something's getting hung up.

Congrats! What a fun milestone!!! You do realize that this is the beginning of the end, don't you? Ah, to be mobil. Heaven for the baby, a whole new set of concerns for the parents. Today, your cell phone. Tomorrow, your pots and pans.

Dorian is a mover and a shaker! That little army crawl is too cute. Tessa just mastered sitting up, but crawling and rolling over are still a no go. She needs to figure out how to get away from her brotherly abuse...

I just can't get over how adorable he is! James never crawled, so I have to enjoy the cuteness of other children's crawling.

I bet he'll know how to use cellphones by the time he's two!

Seeing Dorian today has been a unexpected delight!

Whatever, he is quick at learning everything. Asher is a month older and no desire to get around. Guess that means you will be doing some baby proofing soon, Have fun with a mobile baby, life will never be the same :)

So adorable! As mentioned above, get ready for a whole new level of Mommy-work.

Gray was the same way with phones. My mom-in-law gave him a couple of their "dead" ones, because he wouldn't accept mere toys.

Oh! I remember the army crawl. I forgot how cute it is. (That's the style mine went with).
