Crawling and commenting

on September 15, 2009
Froglet didn’t express any interest in crawling at all until he was nine months. I think it was due to our tiled floors – not good for gripping with your sleepsuit-clad knees. As soon as we got a rug he was off like a shot. So I wasn’t sure if Nutmeg would wait that long or not. And she hasn’t. Today she crawled her own length (falling over once or twice and complaining vigorously all the way through). Then she looked at me and started to cry as if to say “look I’ve got this far, can’t you just carry me the rest?” So I did. I’m so proud of my baby!

Meanwhile Froglet is developing a great sense of humour. At the weekend we went out with some friends, and as he walked along behind me with their small daughter I could hear him commenting on my clothes: “R, do you like Mummy’s skirt? And her black boots? And her new socks – they come right up to here.” On recounting this to The Engineer later I remarked that I felt like a fashion model, upon which Froglet immediately turned round and said matter-of-factly: “Well, you’re not.”

His father creased himself laughing.
