Don't knock my yoga

Andrew was teasing me about doing yoga today. I don't know why he was teasing me because he's the one who looked ridiculous.

Rachel was on the floor rocking on her hands and knees. Being the encouraging father that Andrew is, he got down on his hands and knees and started crawling in circles around her saying,

"Come on, Rachel, this is how it's done!"

He then proceeded to tell me that if I were to crawl around all day tomorrow, Rachel would surely start crawling.

"You could just do everything on your hands and knees," he said, "even yoga!"

Then he started walking on his knees while doing an awkward sequence of arm movements.

"Hey," I said, "I don't think you should make fun of yoga until you try it."

Mostly I think that because it kicked my trash the first time I tried it. Haven't made fun of it since.

"Why don't you do PM yoga with me?"

Andrew got me an AM/PM yoga DVD for Christmas. The AM routine is pretty straight forward but the PM routine is rather difficult. Andrew looked at me with mock terror in his eyes,

"My bodymind is screaming, 'No, not PM yoga!'"

At least he recognizes that it's hard.

Anyway, I'd better go. He just crashed into the baby gym/couch/wall screaming, "Ahhh! These legs don't have breaks on them!" I think he might actually be in pain.


  1. Perhaps if you explain to Andrew that we're not actually physically designed to crawl around on our hands and knees... considering we have knee caps... and babies don't?
    Rachel looks like she's enjoying it though!

  2. it looks like she is getting close to crawling! Awesome!
    aww, yoga. . .I miss it so much. I took a class in college and convinced a friend of mine to take it with me. She was under the impression that yoga doesn't really work your muscles out. :) it was great to see her after the first day, when she could barely walk.

  3. She is going to be crawling any day!!! Maybe she should Maggie some lessons.

  4. Watching this video makes me sad (for the 50th time, roughly) that I can't hold that baby!!

    Also, I had no idea that Andrew was so good at crawling!

  5. "Baby, crawling doesn't usually hurt. It's just your dad."

    My new favorite quote ever. Looks like she'll be crawling any day!

  6. Your husband is really weird...

  7. Look at what a good crawler Andrew is! Wow he is growing up so fast :)

  8. Wow, Crystal. I think I got my laughs in for the day!

    Isn't he just, though?
