Jul 05, 2012 Crawling A couple of days ago I mentioned how my son tries to stand and skip the crawling stage. Well, I figured out how to make him crawl. I place him on the floor on one side of the room, and I go to the other side of the room. I tell him that I'm leaving, and he immediately starts pumping those legs. He does not want me to leave without him. If the Olympics had a crawling event for babies, he would take home the gold medal.
