The Bunny Hop

For over three and a half years, you have prayed and followed Jude's milestones and accomplishments!  Y'all have gotten just as excited as we have when his hard work pays off and he meets a new goal.

Well I have some very exciting news...

I have waited for not seven, eight, or nine months, but for FORTY FOUR MONTHS to be able to say..


Just like Jude is incredibly unique, so have been the ways in which he does things.  And this is no exception.  Jude's crawling is referred to by his therapists as "bunny hopping". 

He had been doing it once or twice here or there, but tonight the light switch flipped on and he does it pretty much everywhere he needs to go.

It is really too cute.. so cute that I had to share a video of him doing it.  So, ENJOY!!

Isn't that too cute!  We are so proud of Jude's new accomplishment.  We know he worked hard for it.. and so have we.

Does it sting a little to be able to make the announcement that my son is a crawler three years late?  ABSOLUTELY NOT!!  In fact, it makes the announcement even sweeter to share!


  1. Oh Angel , that's fantastic. You could see the excitement on his cute little face. Lane looked so proud. Just precious!! Jude could not have two better parents. You should be proud of not only Judes accomplishments but all of your accomplishments as parents. I'm so glad to know you and pray that everything with Sweet Pea is just as you have prayed for. Let his will be done.
    Love y'all

  2. That is SO CUTE! I love it! Great job, Jude! :)
