Yesterday Amelia J moved across the floor! She still can’t crawl but she did what is known as a bum-shuffle. While still sitting upright she used her legs to move herself across the carpet towards an enticing toy. She hasn’t done it again so perhaps it was a one off but it was pretty amusing to witness. To check out a simple demonstration of the shuffle, click on the image above.
Oh, that’s great! The “Bum Shuffle Demo” just really brightened my day!
just needs a soundtrack and you’ve got a hit on your hands, I think.
i did the bum shuffle, except my mother called it the bum crawl. I never did crawl properly as a child. My twin sister on the other hand did indeed crawl good and proper.
Almost time to have to lock her away from the “boys”. I hear Big-P is polishing his gun
Almost! But I hope she isn’t bum shuffling out the door to go on dates when she’s 16 (15? 13? When do kids start dating??). That would just be weird.
how exciting 🙂
aww.. lol. how cute!
You know, I think they should name a dance after this little manouvre!
I love it when babies start to move – they get so creative about how they get around, and they discover so many things!
What a cutie! Does she move that fast? She must have good balance. 🙂
AH! first time visitor…this site is soooo cute. i love it!!!
*giggling* toooo cute!
You are so talented!(also love the term “bum shuffle”…)
how absolutely adorable. go amelia j!
Next dance party movement: the bum shuffle.At a meeting: let’s bum-shuffle this issue.
To my SO: I will subtly approach you from unexpected angles, or I would simply bum-shuffle you.
You are the best, Claire.
i “bum-shuffled” when i was a baby. instead of crawling, i scooted around on my little bum and was pretty fast!
i was a bum-shuffler as a child. my mother felt my activities kept the wooden floors polished.
The bum shuffle is a time honored move for me. Every time I’m in a house with a long carpeted straight staircase I am overcome by the desire to bum shuffle down the stairs. I guess that makes me a big freak. *grin*
she is the cutest! quick question though, what font are you using in that bum shuffle jpg. i have been trying to find that font for the longest time. is it a mac thing?
The font is silkscreen. There is a link on the right of the main loobylu page to it.
