Crawling soon?

Tigh is starting to pull his knees up under him when he's having tummy time. Are any other babies doing this? He pulls his legs up but then his arms go down and vice versa. He hasn't been able to coordinate getting on his knees and elbows at the same time, but he's trying to inch forward. Imagining him crawling around is CRAZY! :eek:

Exciting!!! Though, why do they have to grow up so fast!? I had Ronan on his belly yesterday and he was SORT of pulling his legs up under him, but he isn't even trying to roll yet so I don't think his means much!

Ohh I bet he will be an early mover! Gabby doesn't try to crawl, she just wants to stand up all day.

Olivia has started to put her feet down on the ground and push her butt up in the air. She hasn't started rocking yet because she's still working on getting up on her hands.

Not even anywhere close to crawling here, when she lays on her tummy she usually rolls or just puts her head down. I have a feeling it will be a very long while until she attempts to crawl, and I think I am okay with that. I just want her to be able to sit on her own Smile

no where near crawling here but I do think she's going to be able to sit fairly soon. I can actually put her in a sitting position for a couple seconds before she topples. She also loves to stand up, so maybe an early walker as well. DS hated crawling, crawled at 10 months, but then walked a couple days before his first birthday, so only crawled for 2 months. I could see her doing the same thing with not crawling much.

We're kind of on the move here, too. Michael's inching forward during tummy time. He brings his knees up and depending on how much traction he can get, he pushes with his feet and kind of reaching with his arms/hands. If I put him down, he's never in the same spot for long LoL. I think I'll be chasing this little man before I had expected!

Me too (well, HIS own haha)! He'd much rather stand then sit so I've been having him practice more sitting between my legs so I support his back.
