Creeping on hands and knees develops the midbrain, helps hand-eye coordination, and increases respiration. The bad news, guys, is that I'm not so sure Samuel is going to be creeping too much longer.
He is the most determined child I have ever met in my life!!
He crawls up my mom's steps just for the sake of crawling up them. When he gets to the top, he just crawls back down. And, today, he pushed up on a toy and then stood up, balancing, for a few minutes before he fell down. And the child's not quite six months yet!!!!
I really think he's going to be walking before too long...the child just has the drive to go and go. We're not encouraging it, but he's pushing up on everything he can get his hands on. He's just a mess!!
