Milestone Monday: A Man on the Move

Monday, November 12th, 2012

It’s official folks. My little man is on the move. He started crawling at about 8 1/2 months, but at first it was just a couple inches. Now he scoots and can make great strides. His technique is different than Fia’s was. He uses one leg to push off each time. It’s kind of like what you see a dog or cat doing when they want to, well, scratch their butt. I’m just explaining that so you can visualize how he looks.

I assure you, his butt is spotless. His only purpose is to gain ground and get to a place where he can pull himself up. Like the trampoline.

I can see his wheels churning. “Crawling?” he’s saying.  ”Puulleeeazzzze. I just want to stand and walk. Then run.”

It’s time to babyproof. Time waits for no man. Especially this one.
