Belly Dancing

I do believe that true mobility for Luke is not far off at all. For the last couple of weeks, he has been rolling to get to what/where he wants. Pretty standard. But for a few days now, he has been using his tummy as a sled. He arches his back and pulls up his feet, then propels himself backward using his arms. He even stops every couple of pushes to look over his shoulder! He isn't very fast doing this. He only moves 3-4 inches at a time. But it's enough to have the kitties giving us "you didn't tell us he'd be able to chase us!" looks. LOL But in the last couple of days, he's become very adept at getting up on his hands and knees. He can't move anywhere like that yet, but his belly is completely off the ground. He just hasn't quite figured out how to move an arm or a leg without falling to the floor again. Soon enough, though, I'm sure. Remind me again why we didn't baby-proof the house before he got here? (You know, like all the books said to!)
Currently feeling: encouraging
