It's Official...

Dash is crawling. But I am at a loss as to what date to put in his baby book for the achievement of this milestone. One may say he has been "crawling" for weeks. He would rock on hands and knees and take one lunge before collapsing on his belly and flailing like a little froggy. Then he learned to lunge, fall, push himself up to a sitting position, get back on his hand and knees and lunge again. Inefficient, admittedly, but Dash could make his way to whatever he was trying to retrieve, be it ball, book or electrical cord. Now he will crawl on hands and knees across the room with remarkable speed, undaunted by any obstacle.

Which brings us to the challenge: How does one determine what is the "official" date of this milestone? As six in the city noted recently, one wants to record in print these special occasions. Is "during the Octave of Easter" specific enough to record as the date at which he began to crawl? I know it's not crucial, but the grandparents are keeping track!
