On the move

At nine and a half months Lincoln is finally starting to move around. Up until this point he was content to sit on the floor and play with what ever was in front of him. If I tried to entice him to move by placing toys out of his reach he always found a speck of dirt to play with instead – at least we know his imagination is active! Now he is reaching for toys, remotes, the dog, and can push himself into a crawling position. One of two things happens at this point:

1. He stays on all fours for a few seconds, loses strength, and flops on the floor, at which time he has a mild freak attack until one of us rescues him. His coping mechanism of choice is to suck his thumb and pretend he is trying to go to sleep.

2. He stays on all fours for a few seconds, loses strength, flops on the floor and instead of moving forward he pushes himself backwards. Inevitably he pushes himself into an inanimate object, or under a table,  and gets stuck, at which time he has a mild freak attack until one of us rescues him.

Despite his lack of crawling skills he still manages to get what he wants. We think he will probably just stand up one day and start running. Did I mention he loves to stand? He hasn’t mastered the fine art of pulling himself up yet, although he is practicing on a daily basis, but we can stand him at the coffee table and he will amuse himself for a while. Because of this we decided it was time to move the crib mattress down – Tweety bird didn’t know what hit him.
