An Immobile Summer, It's All I Askemily
Paul is days away from sitting up independently. He can sit up on his own if we’re sitting right there next to him, but he typically topples forward within 15 seconds or so. But once he figures it out, I’m pretty confident he’ll be crawling in no time.
But honestly, I hope that’s not the case. I love my cute, squishy, non-moving ball of a baby.
Because really, baby mobility is so overrated. Don’t you think?
But if Paul is anything like his older siblings, crawling is a milestone he might hit in just a weeks. All three of his siblings crawled in their sixth month of life. Paul will be six months old, exactly two weeks from today. The mobility countdown is on!
But no way am I ready to start chasing him!
With Paul being my 4th child, I cherish his immobility. Because honestly, knowing where he’s at, makes my life 50 shades of easy. I know he hasn’t crawled upon a stray Lego or Polly Pocket choking hazard. And I can rest easy that he’s not attempting to scale the stairs. My four story home is currently gate free, and it’s kinda glorious.
I’m thinking if Paul can chill out and celebrate his immobility until the big girls go back to school in August, I’ll be happy as a clam. Once the chaos of the summer winds down, I’ll be all about him becoming a crawler. Heck, even a walker!
Until then, I will keep whispering in his little baby ear that crawling is for suckers, and highly overrated. *wink*
When did your baby become mobile? Did you have an early crawler?
