Tomorrow Grayson will be 8 months old and for the last two weeks he has been trying so hard to get the whole crawling thing down. Poor boy gets so frustrated. He knows how to get up in the crawling position but he can’t figure out how to go. And boy does he want too! I can’t get him to sit still these days. He tries so hard and he moves back and fourth so much he gives up by rubbing his head into the ground. His big ole’ noggin seems to be slowing him down but he keeps on pushing! He is getting around these days by rolling and moving in all kinds of ways all over the floor. I am anxious to see how busy he will be when he crawls but I am fine with him just sitting up and playing with his toys. I know once the crawling begins I will really have to baby proof all over again.
My girls never really crawled long. They learned how, crawled for a few weeks and next thing you know they were all running around by 12 months. I can’t wait for this next chapter even though I am so sad my baby is just a few months shy of ONE YEAR OLD. Ahhhh, I can’t believe it. Wasn’t I just announcing my pregnancy like ummm, yesterday?
So PLEASE tell me:
When did your baby crawl?
How did it change things around your home?
What milestones do you remember at 8-months-old?
I can’t wait to read your comments! But in the meantime, here are a few cute pictures of Grayson tying to crawl.
