Bethany gets around

Did you ever see anything as funny as the way my kids crawl?  First there was The Boy: my uncle said he looked like an injured soldier dragging one leg behind, but he sure got around.  Now it’s Bethie-babe, scootching around on her bottom with both hands free.  She can even rise to a standing position without using her hands to pull herself up.

She’s going to have some mean muscle tone in her legs by the time she starts walking!  Maybe the rest of us should try her technique for a few minutes every day.


  1. This is so funny! I watched it twice then had to call my children to watch it, and then they got on the floor to attempt it, but of course they can’t even get in the starting position. Thanks for posting!

  2. I watched this when you first posted it, but I just re-watched after clicking through from your 1-year-old Parker post. It’s too cute! I have never seen a baby get around like this before! My daughter, almost 1, crawls on hands and one knee, and keeps the other leg folded under her bum the whole time.

  3. My Bethie told me I just HAD to stop by here and see YOUR Bethie’s “crawling” video. Oh my word. I agree: I’ve never seen anything like it!

    That is so cute!!

  5. That was hilarious! I’ve never seen anything like it.

  6. I’ve never seen anything as unique as that!

    How cute is she!!!!! She’s really growing…I think I see many similarities between her and The Boy.

    Thanks for sharing that.

  7. That is so funny! She is on the move! One of my daughters scooted around just like your son did. She eventually did crawl in the usual way, but we loved watching her scootch!

  8. One of my granddaughters went about on her butt, but she went more on her side. I’ve never seen Bethany’s method before, but it obviously works!!

    It never ceases to amaze me how beautifully unique all children are ;-).

  9. haha! how cute! she is adorable. her nickname should be Speedy Gonzales 😛

  10. I have seen a lot of different crawling techniques, but that is the first time I have seen that. She really moves fast too!!!

  11. I am so cuted out right now! That was a 100 on the cute meter! Save that video for the future husband!

  12. That is the craziest and yet most adorable baby crawl I have ever seen!!! Way too cute!

  13. Cute! And I LOVE the smocked outfit!

  14. I had the same thought. With no carpet the diaper would be more comfortable than the knees! Too sweet! I enjoyed both videos! How fast they grow! Blessings, Eva

  15. This is too funny. My Janai did that too. And lucky for these babies they don’t have to mess with carpet. We don’t have ANY carpet and maybe that’s why they resort to their bottoms!!

  16. Kim,
    This is cute and hysterical @ the same time. Thanks for sharing…

    Jeanie : )
