as usual Parker always does things his own way...and Mom must learn it is HIS way, however unique...what I have humbly learned is that while most typical kids just walk once they start and throw crawling aside, Parker still prefers to crosspattern crawl with walking here and there. Interestingly enough he is more motivated to walk around other kids his age (continuing to support my theory that kids with DS need typical models at this stage rather than a school of DS kids). He is the master of creativity...since our weather has been so hot already we stopped wearing pants...he doesn't like scraping his knees on the concrete so in between walking he started bear crawling! In the house he doesn't bear crawl, so he's figured out when it is appropriate! I am reminded that "slow and steady wins the race"
