Alex has been attempting to crawl for almost 2 months now. In early February, after waking up from a nap, I found him in the crawling position: on all fours, rocking back and forth. For about 2 weeks that is all he would do. Any time I would put him on the floor he would go into the crawling position and then plop down on his belly and “swim.”
Well, eventually he started to figure out that he could move. He would pull his feet in close to his body and then plop down, moving himself forward a few inches at a time. After getting bored with that, he realized that he could move his hands and his feet, and that he would move a little farther that way. He would do that two or three times before plopping on his belly.
Today, finally, he really figured it out! He now crawls! Very slowly, but crawling no doubt! Check it out:
I’m so proud of my little man! Now I’ll just have to keep an even closer eye on him at all times.
