Our son is crawling!

Our 8 month-old son crawled for the first time today.  I was on the phone with my mother and I looked down at the floor and he had crawled a few feet.  It's bittersweet for me...he will have more freedom now and won't get so frustrated, but on the other hand, it means he is growing up.  Can't he stay a baby forever?  Did anyone else have these feelings when your LO crawled for the first time?  I can't imagine how I will feel when I see him walking for the first time...LOL!

My ds started crawling a couple weeks ago - he's almost 8mo. It's nice because everybody's so proud that he can do it (and he's already trying to walk! surprised )


On the other hand, now we have to worry about keeping him out of everything! And chasing him around when he's determined to explore is EXHAUSTING.

Good luck!!

Way to go to your little one!  And yes those feelings are normal, so happy to see them hitting that milestone, but so sad that you are "losing" your baby.

Congrats!!!! I am still waiting for the lil' one to crawl, but savoring the moments. When I first heard him laugh, my heart almost broke because I realized he's not going to be a baby forever. I wish there was a way to keep them as babies...

way to go
