Ready, Set, Goooo!

I know I’ve said this before, but Braxton is making significant strides toward becoming mobile.  So exciting for us and him! He is fully able to get himself sitting from laying down on his back, rolling both ways, he can get himself in to a crawling position either from laying or sitting, he can even get himself back into a sit from a crawling position! He’s definitely mastered the crawling backwards which is developmentally the correct order he should be doing things. That means forward crawling isn’t far away! We’ve been able to get him to crawl forward a few “steps,” and you can see in his face he knows what to do, but he just can’t seem to communicate that to his big ol’ thighs to move forward haha So just backward movement for now.  It’s great though, to be able to see him get from point A to point B with intent.  I even caught him trying to pull himself up on the couch to stand. He got as far as kneeling then didn’t know where to go from there. Uh-oh, he’s reading to run. I can’t wait! 🙂 I forgot what it was like to have a mobile little one running around since big sis is 6 now. Lay Brax down, go to the kitchen to get his feed ready, come back 5 minutes later and he’s on the other side of the room haha, I love it! He’s getting pretty quick at rolling and scooting backwards.  For a kid who wasn’t supposed to make it out of the hospital, he’s come so far and is doing so great. Extremely proud of our little man. Keep it up, Braxton!!
