rmc28: Rachel holding newborn Nicholas (rmcf+nhf)
[personal profile] rmc28
Nicholas is now independently mobile, moving himself unaided across the living room yesterday.  He's been cruising and walking-with-help for some time, but what he's actually using to move is a sort of part-crawl, part-bumshuffle that I've never seen before, but clearly works for him.  I'm going to try to film it at some point for the wider family.

We're doing reactive babyproofing at the moment - moving things as and when he discovers he can reach them, and refereeing quite a lot between him and Charles over Charles's toys.  I'm just getting well from one of the worst colds I've ever had (I was actually signed off sick, it went on so long), while Tony is just getting ill.  In the longer-term, we need to do what we did before: make the living room safe and reinstate the baby gate on it.  A challenge I am not going to try until everyone is better.

Go Nicholas! :D Tell him Humuhumu is grateful for the fuzzy onesie - she was wearing it outside today while watching her parents garden from her pram.

I'm sorry to hear you're ill - I hope a full recovery is on the cards soon.

Feel better soon!

Is this the one-leg-in-front, one-leg-behind bumshuffle? Hannah did this, and I'd never seen it before. Another Mum told me that her daughter also did it and when the HV saw her in action she was referred straight up to the Paediatric Orthopaedics department, who looked bewildered and said it was perfectly normal! :-)
