Eliza just learned how to move herself forward yesterday. It’s not crawling in the traditional sense but more like an “army crawl” or what some people call “creeping.” Basically, she keeps her belly on the floor, puts her butt in the air, pushes with one of her legs, and reaches forward with one of her hands. We’ve been trying to entice her to move forward for months. What was the first thing she finally went for after all those attempts? Mommy’s lap. Then I tested it with other tempting things placed just out of her reach: my cell phone, her baby monitor, a ball, some favorite toys. Yep! She can move forward alright! It isn’t elegant or fast, but at least she’s getting somewhere. Video to come soon.
