well Emma is 9 1/2 months old and she is just learning to crawl which i think is on time...but i read that by now she should be trying to walk and holding on to furniture and walking. i try to help her to do it but she has no interest. how can i encourage her? also, she sits up on her own and crawls...but when she is sitting up, she wont lay on the floor to crawl. its like shes afraid to. so i try to put toys she likes at a distance to encourage her to go from the sitting position down to crawling but she just cries until i give her the toy or pick her up...any suggestions to help her out a little?
