born to run

born to run

The little tike is now running! (He is not always touching the wall when he runs either.) It seems like he went so quickly from not walking at all, to sort of knowing but not doing much with it, to walking around nonchalantly to running. His walk/run really does have the feeling of “toddling” as he streaks across the floor looking like Charlie Chaplin with a big sunny smile.

Lukas is a late walker (he’s now 19 months) and I have to say it is easier to have him walking. I had really had enough of “the slide” where he dust-mopped the floor with his stomach, for about 4 or 5 months, and then the crawling through mud and dirt and whatever else, ripping holes in all the knees of his 2T pants and not being able to wear shorts when it was hot because of the knee issue, for another 5 or 6 months.

That said, it was really sweet to watch him sliding along on his belly like a little snake, really just as mobile as can be. And his crawling was cute too–especially when he lightning crawled to get somewhere before me, like out the front door or into the bathroom. Of course, he still drops down to crawl sometimes, but now it is usually the “bouncy run” and giggles as he heads for the toilet or the bike chain, when he sees his chance.
