Scooting!


Matthew is now scooting, backwards that is. He has also started putting his bottom in the air while resting only on his hands and feet or knees. Someone told me that scooting backwards is one of the first signs that crawling is coming soon...is that true? Please comment. Mahalo

The picture was taken first thing this morning when Matthew woke up. He was a happy little guy, laying on his tummy and talking to his sleep sheep.

The scooting usually is a step in the right direction...but no telling how long it takes to get there.

Brooklyn has been doing that for a couple months, but she can't put any weight on her knees, so who knows, sounds like he is progressing quickly. I bet he'll be a fast walker! Watch out that's the crazy stage:)

ummmm....well scooting backwards came a bit earlier than the army crawl that led into real crawling with my girls. So i don't know...he might be crawling soon, he might not. i know this doesn't help...:)

for us hyrum scooted around and then within 2 weeks was doing the wounded soldier (ARMY) crawl. He did that for about 3 weeks then was full blown crawling. this is the time where your life will really start to get interesting as Matty can get into more and more things. if you have not baby proofed - start now because it takes quite some time to find all the little things!

Uh oh...Time to get a crib-- now that he's scooting ad bearing weight on his legs. Ava actually scooted for about 2weeks then started almost a bear crawl type of thing and did that for a couples weeks. You still have some time left. I remember when Ava first tried to crawl; I wanted to cry. I had this overwhelming feeling that time was going by way too fast. All i can say is enjoy this time when you don't have to chase the baby around the house. I miss those days whe all Ava would do was scoot.

So cute!! As far as crawling, it's one of those things you never know. It can happen soon or maybe not. But it will be fun waiting to see :)

We got the pictures done 2 weeks ago. Portrait Innovations. I'm not sure if they are in HI, but I would definitely check them out if you make it to the mainland any time soon!

Thanks for the compliments!
