Damien Crawling at Four Days Old

One thing that fascinates me is the little-know fact that newborn humans are actually born with the ability to crawl.

We put Damien on his infant crawling track for the first time today, at four days old, as his circumcision is healed now.

In this video, he goes from about halfway down the track to almost to the bottom - he actually started at the top and goes all the way down in this session. The track is on a slight incline, making it easier for him to move.

He has gone down the track a couple of times today. It is amazing to see his determination as he moves. He grunts, groans, and whines to build up the respiration needed to move.

When he is on his back, he just lays there, but any time I put him on his stomach, whether in the track, on the bed or floor, or even on my chest, he tries to move. And move he does.

"Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight." 
Psalm 199:35
Damien is 4 days old
