For those who like tummy time

Just a curiosity question.....if your lo likes tummy time what did they do with their feet (esp around 3ish weeks)?
DS1 hated it so can't compare. Adam likes it and he'll pull his feet under him and push! Of course he's still top heavy so can't pick his upper body up but he's trying hard to move. If I put my hand at his feet he actually pushes forward.

For others lo's at this age is this normal or am I in trouble once he has upper body strength?

GAH! I just typed a response and it deleted...

Anyway, with all of my kids, they were like that. None of them really enjoyed tummy time much lol. But they needed it to learn how to move so we make them. With Desmond he can actually move in a little circle because he gets so mad and he's kicking his feet and what not (one time I had him on the floor, left the room for about a minute and came back to him being turned about 1/4 of a circle). But since he's learned to roll, him getting tummy time is harder.

Ella has done the same thing with her legs since early days. Not sure what it will mean for future mobility! DS absolutely hated tummy so he'd just lie there and scream!

Heidi too, if I put her on her tummy and put my hands behind, she goes all the way across the room. Don't know if Jess would have because we had carpet then and we have a wood floor now.

Going to be interesting when they start moving!!
