Come on, baby, do the locomotionAugust 14, 2007
As of two weeks ago, Phil had a crawling range of about one foot in any direction. Since then he’s made remarkable progress. Tonight he was sitting in the kitchen when Liz told him to come to bathroom, where she was waiting to give him a bath. So he did!
His crawling form has been described as “commando-style,” meaning that he lies flat on his belly and propels himself forward mostly with his arms. He could be really sneaky if it weren’t for the wild kicking, heavy breathing, babbling, giggling, and drooling.
Liz has also made good locomotive progress over the past fortnight; she’s run post-partum personal records (PPPRs) of 19:00 for 5K and 40:43 for 10K.
I’m proud of them both.
