Our little Darbs is not so little anymore. In the past week he's had another leap in development and all of a sudden he seems bigger, older.
Yesterday he started doing this hilarious fake laugh on cue, which I loved but Lil informed me was 'annoying'.
I haven't been encouraging the poor boy to crawl. In fact, I've probably been discouraging him. But he's been able to get around quite well by shuffling and rolling. He starting crawling a little while ago, but could only go backwards. So he was seeing something he wanted and reversing away from it, much to his distress. He was also reversing under the lounge, under the TV cabinet, under everything much to the girls and my amusement!
Today he finally worked it out and can now crawl forwards. To say he's pleased with himself is an understatement. To be honest it's come at the worst time, but what can you do?
I should be grateful as by his age (10 months) Goose was almost walking. Although, being premmie, technically Darbs is only 8 months, so probably just the right age to start crawling. Hopefully walking (ie running away) is many months away!
For now it's nice to see the boy change gear and head in the right direction!
