Gallant's New Years Day

Today Gallant sat himself up for the first time.  First three times, actually.  That is great: he often wants to be sitting (instead of on his belly) so he can manipulate a toy with both hands.  I place him sitting many times each day, and soon I won't need to.

Yesterday he did his first real crawling motion, instead of pushing with his legs while the side of his face is on the floor.  He did it again today.  Both instances were brief and when in pursuit of a toy: reaching for an object prompted his arms to move appropriately for crawling.  I'm in no rush to have a crawling infant, although our baby corrals are cleaned and set up so the house is ready.
