Leaps and Bounds
Remember how I’ve been talking about how Nathan’s been moving around all over the place via various forms of crawling? Well, he’s suddenly on the brink of being able to crawl forwards with his tummy off the floor! Today, he got on all fours and actually crawled, belly off the floor, two steps! (Can you even call it that… steps?)
He got up on all fours and rocked back and forth a few times. Then he spied Mr. Seahorse.
And guys, he CRAWLED FORWARDS! Not backwards. Not his typical army crawl. Not even the crawl/lurch. He moved his arms and legs forward in the crawling motion!
The past few days have been a whirlwind of advancements. Along with his first REAL crawling motion, he’s started pulling himself up on everything!
The coffee table. His high chair. Bookshelves. If he can reach it, he tries to pull himself up on it. He usually gets about halfway up and then plops back down again- but I have a feeling that it won’t be long at all.
He’s also becoming more adept at getting into stuff.
Like his dresser drawers.
We finally had to baby-proof Nathan’s dresser drawers in his room because he kept pulling the drawers open and digging around inside.
We are now entering the Toddler Years.
