Crawling

Noah has been working very hard on his crawling. He started out with a funny inchworm crawl, quickly transitioned to a fast army crawl, and has now transitioned to a traditional crawl. He loves his new sense of freedom and takes advantage of all the rooms in our condo. In this first video, notice how Noah closes the child gate while leaving his nursery. He does that EVERY time we go in and out. He cannot stand to have the gate open.

This video is a bit shaky, but notice Mr. Man's huge smile as he gets what he wants.

Noah is not interested in walking at all. He continues to cruise around along furniture and speed by on his walker, but refuses to take any steps alone.

I know that when Noah is ready, he will take the risk. I know that it is OK that he is not walking yet. I know that Noah's lack of risk-taking will be a good thing in the future. I know all of this, but I cannot help my fear of having a ten year-old little boy who still crawls. I know, I know. All things come to those who wait.

  1. His speed is awesome! He just plows along. And yes...he will walk when he feels like it. Think of it this way...maybe he isn't a "risk taker" but he is showing his willful side!

  2. Careful what you wish for! :) As fast as he is at crawling, "power walker" won't even begin to describe him.

  3. If it helps at all... I never crawled, I scooted, AND I didn't walk until I was 22 months old.

  6. It is so fun to watch Noah at play; he is the cutest little crawler ever. With his determination, I doubt there is anything he can't conquer. Thanks, Becky, for making it possible for us to be spectators :-)

  7. I love how Noah makes sure everything is secure, before he plays. You and I must have the same interior designer! Plastic toys lined up against the wall is all the rage just ask Jack. Love you guys Katy Mc ( I sometimes worry I am going to have a 10 year old boy who does not sleep through the night in his own room)
