Video Clip: Baby Niko Learns to Crawl (0:29)

Who knew that Downward Dog was a milestone in the life of a baby? Well, apparently for my little guy this is the case. Niko hit a major milestone this week. After many weeks of trying to push his tiny little body onto all fours and rocking back and forth and back and forth, but going nowhere, Niko actually crawled this week. And, Borys and I got his second time ever crawling on video.

Now you may be wondering: so where does the yoga fit in? Well, sometimes right before he starts to crawl he gets on all fours, but not his hands and knees, rather his hands and feet. Just picture it, little Niko balancing on his hands and feet, bum high up in the air and rocking forward getting ready to propel himself into life as a yogi perhaps…

10 month old Niko is certainly keeping us busy. Based on my observations over the last few weeks I thought for sure he would be crawling by now, but actually he is still just “almost” there. He’s getting pretty good at maneuvering from side to side and can inch his way backwards, as well as hold up his body in a crawling position, but for now he sort of just reaches around and moves about in about a two or three foot radius.

His sleep patterns are regular only in their irregularity. He will sleep through the night for a few weeks and then revert to waking up once or twice, which is his current trend: except for last night when he slept straight from 7:30 pm to 6:30 am. Keep it up, Baby!

The other day I went to check on him while he was sleeping and couldn’t get over how long his body appeared while he was just lying there in his crib. It’s crazy to think that he has almost quadrupled his body weight since he was born! That’s a whole lot of growing in just 10 months.

Note: This is part of a series of blog entries that were inspired when Niko wore the bear’s mini karate gi as a Halloween costume. Since then I have used the bear and the costume to document his growth at three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and now eleven months.
