It has been an exciting few days for Sydney’s progress with motor skills. I am currently reading a book which rather eerily predicts each phase of Sydney’s growth. It turns out much of what babies do is pretty standard across all babies.
This week Sydney hit two of these milestones.
On Saturday, February 22nd, Sydney crawled for the first time. She has been getting her butt up in the air quite a bit and even doing the downward dog yoga pose, in which she raises herself to her hands and feet, but moving forward in a crawl had been escaping her until now. Here is the short video. (Sorry it is sideways.) Devon is so excited she got the date wrong.
Then, just yesterday (February 25th), Sydney pulled herself up from lying down in her crib to a standing position. I was very excited and wanted her to do it a bunch more times. Devon was a little nervous and had me lower the crib mattress so Sydney can’t crawl out. Sydney looks a little surprised at herself in this photo!
