I can’t reach my toys.
Mom says I need to keep trying. She just lets me lay here on my belly and flail. I move my arms and kick my legs and she thinks I look like a frog. A cute frog, but a frog.
She and Dad say I need to learn to crawl. I need to push myself around and figure it out, without them helping me. Like somehow get places without them picking me up. That’s all good and stuff, but I don’t want to crawl. I want to walk!
Sometimes I get to stand on the bathroom counter and play with the towel hanger, which is so fun. And then I try to walk a little on the counter, but I’m still trying to make my legs work like Mom and Dad’s do.
I do like laying on my belly and playing with toys — I just want to not do the crawling part. Can’t I just walk first?
