The past few days Peyton has been getting on her hands a knees and will stay like that for awhile and sometimes rock. So how long from when your babies started doing this did they take off and start crawling all over???
Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!
Violet never really rocked, she just army crawled and then went to regular crawling. I think Lily did the rocking for a few days and then took off crawling. One of Lily's friends rocked for months before she started crawling.
Well, Caleb still army crawls everywhere, and boy does he get around! I had to pull him out from under the coffee table just yesterday. He started getting up on his knees maybe about a week-and-a-half ago, but he still just rocks and does that in order to boost himself forward. He doesn't stay on his knees though. So, I'm not sure exactly how long it'll take before he's hands-and-knees crawling, but I still had to babyproof the living room now that he can't get anywhere he wants to. It'd probably be a wise decision to babyproof your place, too, if you haven't already!
Abri started army crawling over a month ago and just started getting on her hands and knees recently. She doesn't do it much though, mostly just to boost herself forward like others have said. Lily I think rocked for a few weeks and then crawled on her hands and feet (never on her knees).
Sounds like Peyton and Didi are doing the same thing...I'm preparing for her to be on the move anytime now, she's already a great scooter, she can really gt around just scooting on her butt until she's close enough to a toy then she lunges forward and grabs it and gets right back into a sitting position, toy in hand.
