May 20, 2010. The first day in my journey towards being mobile. I was on Mommy's bed and wanted to see the dogs. So I leaned forward but still couldn't see them. Then all of a sudden I had leaned so far I was up on all fours! It was great.
From then on I have been trying to crawl. Mostly I lean forward, go up on all fours, and then flop down on my belly towards what I am trying to get to. Each time I do this I get a little farther forward.
However, the crawling is confusing me because really I am ready just to walk. I only have patience for crawling for so long before I try and start straightening my legs, sticking my butt way up in the air. I get really frustrated when I can't figure out how to get from that to standing. But if Mommy or Daddy give me their hands I can pull my self up to standing no problem. Once I am up I like to bend over and pick up toys off the ground. I am also working on standing and holding on to the furniture.
Watch out Mom and Dad, here I come!
