We took Tobin down to the mall today for the baby crawl. It's a competition for baby's between 6 and 12 months. Since Tobin is such a speed demon around the house we figured that a little healthy competition wouldn't hurt!! We signed him up yesterday and could only make the waiting list. Getting to the mall early had it's benifits though. There were some no shows so Tobin made it in! They actually had some really good prizes... 1st place- $1000 RESP, 2nd place- photo shoot, 3rd place- $500 shoping spree at Please Mum, 4th place- $200 mall certificates, and 5th place- $50 mall certificates.
We did go down very hopeful!! Travis took him to the starting line for heat #5. I went down to the other end about 16 feet away and tried to get his attention. The judge shouted GO and the babies were off... well sort of. Some other baby decided that my cell phone looked way better than the toy her mom was waving at her. Tobin sort of just sat there. Then he turned his back towards me and started picking at the duck taped lines on the carpet. He really had no interest in crawling today! Not much for competition at this age... we'll have to try again some other time. I was going to take some pictures but then he never even did anything just sat there and looked cute! Even the annoucer couldn't take her eyes off of him. She actually announced at the end that Tobin won!! Maybe for sitting and looking cute! Anyways he was a little stinker but that's ok we still love him even if he is not much for competition!
