So Delia is 8 mos and has been pulling up on stuff, and recently just started doing this pose when she's on all fours- she does like a downward dog yoga pose! Like she wants to stand but obv can't stand up by herself yet so she puts all her weight in her hands and her butt is in the air and her legs are like straight on her tippy toes! I can't really explain it. If you know what downward dog is that's the only way I can really explain it! What is this? Is she trying to stand?

My daughter is 8 months and has recently started doing that same thing. So cute. I think they are trying to stand. :)

Probably trying to stand. My 13 month old does that when throwing a fit. He wants to lay his forehead on the floor to cry but wants to stay standing up. It's really cute.

My son did this as his version of crawling. I swear he crawled for like 2 weeks and then started walking.

My youngest started doing that once he started walking at 10months but he thinks it's funny to look through his legs at things. LOL

It's normal, I did it when I was little, my ds did it when he was littler, my newphew did it a lot too. My ds is 3 and still does it sometimes.

Ya I didnt think it was "abnormal" or anything- I was just curious as to what she is doing? Lol. Like just for fun or attempting to stand, etc..!?

She could be, I meant normal as in it's just something the majority of kids do as they get a little older, sometimes just because they can lol

My son starting doing that around 6 1/2 months old. My boyfriend's mother said he looked like he was practicing his yoga moves, lol! It was so cute!

might be trying to stand but definitely exploring her abilities.
