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…


In all my years of living in Ottawa (and there’s been a lot of them – 14 in total!), somehow Sue has never seen downtown Ottawa (a.k.a. The Market) or Parliament in the summer. Weird. So, to remedy this pitfall Niko, Sue, Frasier and I headed downtown the other day to do our duties as tourists and see the sights of our beautiful downtown.

Now, Ottawa hasn’t been the coolest of places these last few weeks. In fact, we’ve been having a record breaking heatwave and it really just hasn’t been bearable to be outside for too long. But, despite the heatwave, and considering that it was a touch cooler on this particular day, we braved the Parliament trek. And as you can see from Frasier’s tongue, the heat was still pretty tough to handle. Good thing we had lots of water because all four of us were pretty thirsty by the time these pics were taken.

PS – Niko officially started crawling today! More on that later…
