While the White House maintains its grip on political power and global prestige, those who occupy it become celebrities in the traditional sense. Every move they make is scrutinized, especially when those moves are cute. And Trump’s grandson Theodore has stolen the spotlight.

Ivanka Trump posted video of her youngest boy reaching a milestone on Wednesday. It just so happened that the Theodore learned to crawl in the White House. He’s just 10-months-old, and already making news.
Ivanka and her husband, Trump’s advisor Jared Kushner, have moved into a house in D.C., another milestone chronicled by Ivanka this week.
‘There were so many incredible milestones this past weekend,” Ivanka wrote, “including one for baby Theodore who crawled for the very first time in the White House!’
The home movie caught Theodore’s first crawl, and Ivanka’s surprised gasp as she cheered him on. Ivanka was dressed for the occasion and got down on the floor with Theodore. She called the boy “Monkey” and asked him to crawl. “Do you want to do it? You ready? I think he’s ready!”
When Theodore began to crawl toward his sister Arabella, she gasped. “He’s moving!”
Ivanka’s presence ensure we’ll be seeing more of three-year-old Joseph, Arabella, and Theodore.
Rumors about what role Ivanka might fill are finally being answered. There has been rampant speculation that Ivanka will perform the duties typically expected of the First Lady.
Ivanka told 20/20 last week: “Well, I think its an inappropriate observation. There’s one first lady and [Melania will] do remarkable things,’ said Ivanka, referring to her father’s wife Melania.
The family’s recent move to Washington D.C. is for Jared Kushner, who has taken an unpaid role as his father-in-law’s advisor. Kushner will work along side Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, Hope Hicks, and Steve Bannon.
