mobility stage one
Lucy really wants to crawl. I can see it in her eyes.
She has well and truly mastered the art of sitting but sometimes things fall to just beyond her reach. She leans, reaches and misses. So she dives headfirst towards whatever it is she wants. Depending on the hardness of the surface there is either tears or laughter.
When I put her on her tummy she can get up into the crawling pose but that is about it. After a few minutes she gets frustrated and stuck.
Or, she falls to the ground in her skydiving/dead beetle pose.
This kid is a laugh a minute. It will be lovely when she starts moving herself around but for the moment I'm content to know exactly where she is.
