James Crawling

This is one of my favorite videos of James. It's from a little over a month before he died. I titled the post "crawling" but James' crawling was more of an inchworm kind of experience. If he'd been more patient he would have waited to start moving until he'd mastered the art of getting his arms and legs under him. Developmentally, that's the ideal scenario. He would have waited until he was strong enough to keep his stomach off the ground. James was never patient.

He liked to explore. First he crawled off the rug to check in on his puppies at the door. When his puppies wouldn't play (they were always disappointed James couldn't let them in) back to people. He always came back to people because they were the most reliably entertaining things around.

  2. So sweet! The first time my son crawled was to our sliding glass door, where our dog, and one of his favorite play partners, was waiting on the other side. :) Thank you for sharing!
