Though I never thought it would take 4 years for him to do this, I always wondered how crawling, aquaphor and dog hair would pan out. And yes, just as I presumed, a sticky mess! Luckily Evan's new found motor ability has kept me cleaning the floors constantly. I vacuum, swiffer, mop, then swiffer again to make sure he doesn't collect too much dog hair/dirt on his skin. No matter how much I clean the floors he still ends up finding the spots I missed, so he tends to go right into the bath after a good hour of crawling around. Then ironically enough the floors are sticky with aquaphor when he is done leaving me to cleanup yet again. But hey- totally worth it!
He is able to get onto 4 point (hands and knees) with no problem but has NO balance and tends to face plant when in this position. He will only go on four point when I ask him to as he remembers the result of his balance issue. He will use 4 point to get into a sitting position from laying down. Yet another huge motor milestone. While this transition is also a bit unstable, he has been achieving it more and more with less falls and little spotting.
His favorite thing to do these days while crawling, is investigating the piano room. Yet another floor to clean for him but more area to explore and move around on. It's a new world having him move on his own, something his brother will be doing very soon too! Here is some footage of Evan on the move!
(If you were curious to what Evan says at the end of the video, he said "I want Daniel Tiger". His new favorite show)
