Baby Basic Training

Now that Dane is almost 9 months old, we thought it was time to start his Baby Basic Training. The day started bright and early, much in the same fashion as our Basic Training at the Academy...in the Front Leaning Rest.

HEY BASIC BABY...GET YOUR BUTT DOWN!!!

After 5 seconds (equivalent to First Baby BCT) in the Front Leaning Rest, Dane began his Baby Drill which consisted of pulling himself up on the stair banister. In Toddler Basic Training he'll learn - left flank, right flank, double to the rear, change step, change step, HARTCH!

A couple times during his long and strenuous Drill session we caught him gazing. The boy definitely needs to work on his bearing.
At the end of his drill session (equivalent to Second BCT), Big D got a surprise visit from Mom and the two were able to reconnect.Now that Dane has been accepted into the Baby Wing, he'll soon be given more and more privileges like unlimited pooping of the pants and peeing in the tub!

Seriously, Dane started Bear Crawling today. We think it is because his knees are sore from crawling. It doesn't really matter what the reason is...It is really cute and fun to watch him move around in this new way.

Disclaimer: All babies were under constant adult supervision and no babies were injured during Baby Basic Training.

Ryan's been acting out a bit. Where can I sign him up for Baby Basic Training?

Dane will definitely be at the top of the "class"...I know the word isn't class for military...so, what do I say here?

He keeps this up and he will lose the baby-fat by 18 months.
