Crawling video

We shot this video last Friday. Kylie had been crawling around her room and the hallway like crazy. She had been chasing balls and toys and having a big time. So I had the bright idea to grab the video camera.

Whenever Kylie sees the video camera she freezes. So I haven't been able to capture her funny laugh, her rolling and such because she just stops what she is doing and looks at me when the camera is in my hands.

So I enlisted Karen's help to encourage Kylie to keep playing and crawling.

What I didn't know was that Karen would grab the CAT TOY to prompt Kylie to crawl. On the video you get to hear my incredulous, yet highly amused laughter. Heaven help us-- a cat toy.

Without further ado, here's Kylie's military-style crawling. video

Totally military style crawling! Looks like she's ready for the ropes course next. And the cat toy is perfect inspiration and tickler.. it's fun to hear your voices!

You do realize that she is mobile now. It's all downhill from there!

I've never seen that style of crawling before. So cute! My boys only used one arm and really dragged their belly. Go girl power! Kylie is FAST!

Thanks so much for sharing!

YAY! Go, Kylie, go , Kylie! She is so precious, she makes me want to pick her up and squeeze her!

Casey said...

Very cute!!!

I don't know if your camera has one or not but I found that if I covered the red recording light the babies wouldn't just stare at the camera. Worth a try if you have a red light. :)
