  • My son rolled to where he wanted to go. One day he just let go of the couch and took off!

  • This is why crawling is NOT considered a milestone of development. Not all babies crawl.

  • In my child developement class for my early ed degree it was stressed that it is harder for a child who didn't crawl to learn to read. It has to do with the left-right-left that crawling instills. I'm just repeating what was in my ed class.
