We have a little climber on our hands. Owen is 7 months and just figured out how to pull himself from a sitting position to a standing position.
It is just about the cutest thing in the world to see his tiny body shake as he works so hard, and then ever so slowly rise up onto his feet. We always knew he was an active kid, and bound to figure out how to move early in life. Even at 8 weeks, I remember my mom group leader saying that Owen was one of those kids who just wasn’t going to be happy until he could walk. I wouldn’t exactly call him unhappy 🙂 but he certainly is focused on figuring out how to move and climb!
He’s very close to crawling too. He has a sort of scoot/roll/stretch combo that he uses to get himself closer to toys or people. He’s definitely still figuring out the whole “movement” thing, though, and gets frustrated when he’s stretching or rocking on his stomach and not going anywhere.
