David has a new trick.
It’s very technical.
It’s called “crawling through the coffee table.”
The first time he did it I went nuts. My heart exploded and I grabbed the camera.
These photos? They’re for his college applications.
I didn’t take any photos of the dismount because at that point he hadn’t quite mastered it, and we don’t need the admissions folks at Harvard knowing that.
But now? Now he does it all.the.time.
I used to have to bribe him with the ball or the vacuum cleaner before he’d crawl up there.
Now he does it for no reason; it’s his favorite place to hang out.
And when he gets up there he gives me this proud smile.
It’s as if he’s saying, “See what I can do, mommy? I think it’s time to take my show on the road.”
