Super captain turbo power

Until Tuesday, the captain needed his super turbo captain power engaged before he could launch into crawling attempts. The super turbo captain power? Crying.

Get a good cry ramped up, add being a little pissed off that he wasn't getting an immediate response, and he was off. Slow, but steady, he'd put his head down and pull himself along in a direct line to whichever might be the closest set of arms able to hold him.

We'd joke that he could crawl when this turbo power was engaged. Without it, he'd sit, roll and drag himself along. No crawling.

But then today came, and without any fanfare, the little guy took off across the living room, no wailing, snorting or shrieking needed. He headed toward the front door, open due to the nice weather. Once there, he sat a while, checking out the door and looking out to the street. After proper inspection of the neighborhood had been made, he turned around and headed back to the living room where his cohort in crime was playing.

As he made his way around the house, it was if a whole new world existed for him. He can go where he wants, see what he wants and all without needing to engage the turbo.
