Day 102: baby yoga: downward dog

The little guy is getting so close now to crawling, you can almost taste it in the air.  He’s wobbling back and forth on his hands and knees, almost as if trying to decide of he should take the gamble to go forward.  He also brings one leg up as if in a sprinter’s start position, and then stops there, not sure what to do next.

He is also trying another approach which is probably less beneficial to his crawling efforts than the other mentioned efforts, but is probably a good workout for his little muscles – and it is fun to watch.  This is his current movement to get in the “downward dog” yoga position.  He goes into this position for minutes at a time – most likely staying in it because he is stuck there and cannot figure out the way out of it safely.  

I find it all fascinating – these physical milestones for things that we take for granted every day – just think about it next time you are feeling a little down: you can crawl, right?  This is something my son would definitely envy you for!  In all seriousness, if you think about all the things you can do and the things you have learned in your life, it is really impressive, isn’t it?!
