Oh they are so close! They have been so close to crawling for a little while now. At first, I wasn’t ready for them to crawl because I know it is drastically going to effect my day-to-day life. However, after a few weeks of watching them try and seeing their desperate desire for it, I am beyond ready! They are also daily getting more comfortable with standing and taking steps while holding onto our hands. Jon and I have really been working with them now, moving their arms and legs so they can get the feel…
Here is a few shots of what happens during morning playtime.
Jada is in position. From this position, they rock and then do a wild lunge forward for whatever motivation I had in front of them and end up like this…
and then this…
But alas, I have found the problem, they aren’t actually trying to crawl, they are trying to stand.
They keep one foot firmly planted on the ground and try to shove upwards. I also think this makes them feel more secure that they can get back in the sitting position.
Or this. But she can’t move it forward.
Adia is so close too!
“Come on Mom, just give me the toy”!
We cheer and cheer for their progress, but does anyone have suggestions on helping them connect the dots?
They would be most grateful. ;)
