My little girl is 8 1/2 months old and I thought she was a little behind her peers from mothers group, she had not sat or anything by six months! Then all of a sudden at 6 1/2 months she sat up all by herself-a few wobbles but pretty much by herself and then at 7 1/2 months she started doing this crab crawl backwards – it was more like a slide across the floor – very amusing to watch! So for the last month I have been putting objects in front of me and trying to convince her to crawl forward to me (she is the only child at mums group that hasn’t yet) and then today I was not paying any attention to her (to busy playing on my phone – I felt terrible) and my hubby walks in the room and says “she just crawled!” And I look up and she’s off! Only a few at a time but I nearly missed it! So take note to pay more attention to your bubs or you make be like me and miss it!
