The Scooch

Even though the time has long passed for Ashley to transition from her stationary to mobile phase, so far, she has shown virtually no interest in crawling. Actually, that is putting it mildly. Just for good measure, she would actually take it one step further and SCREAM HER FOOL HEAD OFF anytime we put her in the crawling position. She just. did. not. like it!

But, eager to put our minds at rest, she soon adopted a quite efficient mode of travel that we like to call "The Scooch!" Simply put--she scooches around by putting her feet together and pulling herself along with her hands--disturbingly, not unlike Eddie Murphy in the beginning scene of the classic film "Trading Places"--sans that little platform on wheels (And if you haven't seen that movie--NETFLIX it!--b/c it is so worth it!)

Without further ado...BEHOLD!: Ashley's bizzare adaptation of crawling! Enjoy!

Okay, I have to agree. This is a combination of adorable and creepy! lol

It would actually be totally funny if you did put sit her on a low-wheeled platform just to see what her reaction would be!

She must have a really good core and upper body strength, along with flexibility to maintain that feet position.
