Connor took his first crawling steps tonight! He's been getting up onto all fours for so long...I was beginning to worry that his mild hypotonia was going to delay his crawling a long time. He just kept face planting and getting so frustrated that he couldn't move. But tonight it was like his brain and his body finally connected and he moved forward! Very very slowly, very deliberately, I could literally see him thinking about what body part to move next. Then he almost immediately fell asleep, poor guy tuckered himself right out!<br><br>
I'm obviously happy about this, hoping that this means that he'll walk more-or-less "on schedule" (he's been hovering around the very tail end of the expected age range for milestones) But, this unfortunately got my husband back to thinking along the lines of "maybe he's normal after all, just a little slower than Ian was. Ugh. I know that he just wants Connor to be normal, so do I, and maybe as far as gross motor skills he'll be "normal". But there are so many other things that are just a little "off". Each one is so little that they're easy to brush aside, but taken as a big picture he's got something going on...I just wish we knew what.<br><br>
But, for tonight, he crawled a few feet, and I'm the happiest mama!

Yay! That is exciting! Way to go Connor!!!!<br><br>
The hubby thing is hard. It gets better with time usually; I think we all come to terms with things in our own time. But it is so hard when your spouse isn't ready. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Hmm...yeah, old thread <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> He turned 1 Mar 3rd, he's a mighty crawler now, and can pull up to standing, but can't stand independently yet. He also can't quite walk with assistance (us holding his hands) but he's trying! The average for walking for kids with his syndrome is 18 months.
