Watch Dylan Dreyer's 8-Month-Old Son Ollie Show His Determination to Crawl in This Sweet Video
Dylan Dreyer's young son is already learning to crawl. The "Today" star shared a heartwarming video of little Ollie practicing on the family rug.
Dreyer, 39, shares Ollie and his big brother Calvin Bradley, three, with her husband, Brian Fichera. Like most mothers, Dreyer is amazed at the milestone her son has already reached. The post is found below.
OLLIE IS DETERMINED
In the clip, a young Ollie is seen in a white top, navy pants, and gray socks. At the start, he is on his hands and knees and mostly moves his lower half as he struggles to crawl.
"I just didn't have enough hands," said Dreyer of having to carry a diaper bag, cooler, breast pumps, and little Ollie. She also had to pump for milk while all this was going on back in July.
He then gives up for a while and lays down on his side. He gets up a second time before taking another break to rest on his stomach. With some prodding from dad, Calvin rolls around in a red toy car.
After Calvin gets off his ride and crawls across the carpet demonstrating a crawl, Ollie gets into a stance once again. "Ollie, you're doing so good, baby!" squeals his mom from behind the camera.
In the caption, Dreyer wrote, "A little Monday motivation for you...we all had to learn to crawl." The post received over 160 k likes and a slew of praise from fans in the comments.
SURGERY DAYS APART
In July, Dreyer gave "Today" viewers some insight into the challenges she faces while taking care of her two boys during the quarantine. Because of COVID-19, the boys underwent surgeries within three days of each other.
Calvin had his tonsils removed while Ollie ended up getting surgery during a routine procedure. Dreyer had to get everything done independently as Fichera was unable to help because of the crisis.
NOT ENOUGH HANDS
"I just didn't have enough hands," said Dreyer of having to carry a diaper bag, cooler, breast pumps, and little Ollie. She also had to pump for milk while all this was going on.
Dreyer later shared photos of her kids in the hospital. She noted in the caption that they were home recovering and mentioned how relieved she was that it was all over.
Dreyer often shares photos of her cute kids. Back in March, she celebrated Ollie's two-month birthday with pictures, and her "Today" colleagues could not get over the resemblance between mother and son.
The photograph showed little Ollie lying down with Calvin laughing next to him. Savannah Guthrie said, "he is you," to proud mom Dreyer while Jenna Bush-Hager called Ollie her twin.
