Babies crawl with their arms, not legs, right?

So Lily has been working at crawling. Somedays she does decent and we think she’s about to take off while other days she just rolls around.

Lately she’s been crawling, but not using her feet. Instead, she uses her arms to pull herself around.

Now I always thought that it’d be her feet powering her across the room, but I guess I was wrong.

And she’s getting good too. She seems to know how to go forward, corner, and go backwards while using a combination of her arms and rolling. However, when she goes backwards, it is usually by accident.

I’m guessing one of these days soon she’ll get all the parts working together and she’ll be moving faster than we can imagine. That’s a ways away though; at least a day or two. 🙂

    My son started with this “army” type crawl as well. He learned how to fully crawl at about 8 months and now at 9 1/2 months he is starting to take steps. All kids are different.

      I think we have the got the army crawl down. She’s been moving faster and faster the past couple of days.
