The baby was the slowest of all to crawl. He didn't start until 7.5 months. He's making up for lost time though by pulling up on everything already. I've found him stuck inside the legs of a chair where he'd crawled, pulled up and was standing with no idea how to get down. Things on the coffee table are no longer safe and as we discovered today neither is he.
He pulled up on the coffee table, reached for something on the ground and when he let go of the supporting table, smacked his lip into the edge. Now he's got a fat lip and a little scab, but thanks to the great comfort of nursing, he didn't cry too much and shortly thereafter, I found him standing up, holding onto a box.
It's hard to let go and let them take their bumps and bruises, but so the learning process goes.
