Keep On Crawlin' In the Free World...

It was on this day—Tuesday, July 25, 2006—Alyse decided to slip the surly bonds of immobility and crawl. Though an otherwise floundering and awkward thing, her first crawl was a truly beautiful moment.

In other Alyse-related news, two little teeth have surfaced on her bottom gum.
