Eleven Months Old




Wells has this really distinctive army crawl that he started around the age that normal babies start to crawl (7 months or so) He pulls himself along with both arms and his tummy and legs dragging. We always assumed that he couldn't crawl normally and that's why he did it. The other day he made a terrible mess eating and I pulled off his shirt before getting him out of his high chair. He got down on his tummy, decided that it was too cold, and crawled away LIKE A NORMAL BABY. We were totally amazed. "He can do it!" I called to Josh. As soon as I got his new shirt on him, it was right back to the comando form. I can't believe it. His army crawl is chosen by preference, not necessity.

I went through the same thing with my Katie. She finally decided it was okay to crawl on all fours at 11 months and then walk at 14.5 months. She was capable just didn't want to do it.

Mikey did the same thing until I put him outside on the lawn in just a diaper. No more comando for him after that
