We Have Lift Off

Logan FINALLY started to crawl yesterday!

Due to his GERD, he didn't get a lot of floor time (tummy time or otherwise). It was pretty much impossible for him to lie flat for the first 5 months of his life. He would start to reflux within a couple of minutes...even with all the medication he was on.

So he was late rolling over (he was 6 months old before he could roll over both ways), he was late sitting up on his own (he was almost 9 months old), and he was late crawling (he is 10.5 months old).

Don't get me wrong...I'm not one of those mothers who is obsessed with milestones. I realize that we still have to go by his corrected age due to him being premature. I realize that GERD causes developmental delays. I'm not really worried about all that jazz.

What I am worried about is Logan being bored and cranky, and needing constant entertainment....from me. Until now, he hasn't been able to go where he wanted to go, or get to the toy he wanted to play with. I can never be more than a few feet away at any given moment, so that I may hand him a toy or move him to where he wants to be. Hopefully this new ability will allow him to have more fun without needing my help all the time....and to stop the incessant whining!

I can't believe how much he's grown in the last couple of months! My big little boy!

Too cute. It's so fun (and tiring, as you know!) when they start crawling.

I wouldn't say Logan was "late" crawling, though. Lucy didn't crawl until she was 11 months, and it was just HER time to move -- not by any milestone (crawling isn't even recognized as an official milestone at a particular age), but by her body.

I love how their little bums pooch up in the air!
