I know what you mean about it 'looking' like there is something wrong.
Let's see. My first born, now 18, only went in circles and NEVER crawled with his knees/hands. It was more of a belly/pull with the hands slither
kind of thing. Before this he simply rolled to whereever he wanted to go. He's perfectly fine and normal.
My boy Ryan (not 'mine' but I had him till he was 9 years old) - this one would let his head stay on the floor and use one leg (strait out) to push
himself around. The other leg was more of something that was 'just in the way or there to look at'. It later became something of a new game "try
and pull the sock off". It was the strangest thing you ever saw. I thought the boy was going to give himself brain damage. (Needless to say I
carried him around as much as possible!)
My Megan (Ryans sister who I had from birth to 7 years old) - bless her heart, she crawled 'normal', if there is such a thing, but when it came time
to walk - she flat out refused. Simply would not do it till she was almot a 2. Both Ryan and Megan are perfect, normal and fine.
My youngest boy, now 8 as of last week... He crawled normal, walked normal and climbed like a little monkey. If you ask me, all 3 of the other
children that chose to do it 'there own way' were much less stressful on this mom :-)
