Almost Crawling!

I can't believe how big my little boy is getting! The past few days, he's really been struggling to crawl. Maybe all those playdates with slightly older babies when I've said to Sly, "now watch how this baby crawls around" have started paying off :-)

This was a few days ago, before he figured out that he needs to be on his knees to crawl. He used to get down on his belly, and push himself backwards in a sort of reverse army crawl. In this case, he got himself stuck beside the toilet. Look at those sad little tears!

Contrast that with his perfect crawling stance in this picture from yesterday!

He's so close!

Peeking out the front "door" (for anyone that lives in a home without a real screen door, I highly recommend these hanging screens!)

Crying, because he's back to his backwards army crawl, and is getting frustrated with not being able to move forward as he wants to!

Then mommy helped him sit up again, and he's happy.

Going to attempt to crawl again?

Nope, he decides to stand instead.

I think it's pretty funny that Sly is really good at pulling himself to a standing position, and can even "cruise" along things like the coffee table or the railing on his crib. And yet he still cannot roll over when he is lying down. Not even from stomach to back, which is the easy one! Silly baby.
