Our Rocker


We've reached another milestone in the triplets' journey towards mobility. Arthur now is quite able to rock back and forth on his hands and knees. He's the only one to realize the importance of having your knees beneath you, but he still hasn't figured out the role his arms play in the crawling process. Eager to move, he either remains rocking back and forth, pondering his next choice, or he actively pushes with his arms, sending himself in the wrong direction. When this frustrates him too much, he puts his head to the ground, and starts power-kicking with his feet. We are afraid that he one day will somersault over himself. But for now, he occasionally manages to frog-hop forward a half-foot at a time, landing each time on his forehead. Soon though, we think he'll figure out the next step.

Go Arthur Go! It's so funny how it takes them so long to finally "get" the process down but once they get it...it's all over!
