4. He Learns How to Navigate Household Obstacles
The world becomes a much different place when someone else isn’t navigating for you. When your little guy starts scooting around, he must learn how to get around obstacles in his way. He also learns how to move himself to desired areas of the home (for example, he might learn that taking a right turn past the couch will take him to the amazing toy room!).
5. She Develops Fine Motor Skills
As your cutie becomes more confident maneuvering around her environment, she’ll develop fine motor skills that can be used to move things to her mouth (just make sure she doesn’t do this with things she grabs off the floor) and grasp items. The earlier she develops these fine motor skills, the easier it will be for her to do things like fasten buttons and hold a pencil properly as she grows older.
