Bear has done it!
He is army crawling forward!
He figured out backwards crawling a while ago, but with his tone and associated movement forwards just wasn’t happening. He can get up on all fours, wiggle a little, and just not understand.
Last Thursday (not yesterday) at therapy he army crawled about a food on a mat for a toy. He did the same thing a few days later at home on the carpet.
Today, he has been all over the living room getting every toy (and off-limits thing) he wants!
It’s amazing! We (PT, Physiatrist, Neurology, Hubs and me) all thought crawling just wouldn’t happen. It takes a lot of work to coordinate all 4 limbs, while fighting gravity and there isn’t any equipment to assist him (like a gait trainer assists walking-more on that in the next post).
But my little boy is proving us all wrong!
Oh happy day!
