Seven Months

Once again, TJ has chosen a lunaversary to leap forwards in ability. Today he made kissing noises for the first time (very funny!) and when I tried rolling a ball to him, he was catching it!

His crawling is progressing beautifully (particularly considering he rarely lasts beyond five minutes of practice because it’s so frustrating for him). I’m sure he’s taken his first crawling “steps” (shifting knees/hands forwards. . .  on entirely separate occasions). He often pushes himself backwards by accident, and other times he actually gets forwards – by getting up on hands and knees, rocking back and forth hopefully, and then face-planting (you gain a bit of ground each time – play along at home!)

He also does something Louisette never did – he puts his head down and uses it as a pivot. And he deliberately uses rolling to get around – it’s more efficient than moving forwards.
