I have one of those, too! :-)

Will be fun to see if your son ends up being left handed and my daughter ends up being right handed.

If I didn't see this with my own eyes I would NEVER have guessed that *this* would be how Aubrey got from belly to sitting! LOL! I was playing with DS and DD and put DD down on her belly next to me to focus more on DS. DD got onto all fours and with two or three little hops got into a grok squat, then moved her feet out so that she was sitting with her feet out in front.  It was crazy....and really odd looking - like she had done it a million times before.  So yeah, I just wanted to share that.

unfortunately i think that was a one time deal - a transitional thing or something.  she only did it that one time...now she just sits herself up from hr belly in the typical way. still moving backwards when she tries to crawl though.  she's also been obsessed with using my hands to pull herself into a standing position and she's practicing picking up one foot then the other.  man, they learn a lot s ofast!

It is amazing!!  Holly is hardly learning at the pace of so many of your kiddos.  She has yet to reliably roll over w/ any sort of motivation.  I think she's decided rolling over isn't worth it and she has instead begun to sit up.

Easton isn't sitting up on his own yet, no crawling, just scooting on the floor- but he doesn't get too far!  lol

Yeah, one thing I often find myself forgetting is that my baby was born on the late end of June (20th).  And at this age, 3 weeks can represent a broad range of developmental milestones.  So JNajla, our 20th and 21st babies might be as far along as BabySmurf's in 3 more weeks. :-)  Congrats on Easton's scooting - he's showing a yearn to move.

There is definitely a wiiiiiiide range where these things happen.  And a lot of times even a week can make a difference - it's all in where Baby is focusing their energy.  Aubrey rolled like a rolling pin for about a week, but now she rarely, if ever does it.  She's just focusing on other things.  And yeah, those three weeks make a huge difference - that's about the amount of time it took her to learn...Aubrey is almost 6 months old :)

Yay!  Wow, can you believe Aubrey has been w/ you guys now for almost half a year!?

post #154 of 326

No!!!! It's so bizzare!! This is my favorite baby stage, and I can't believe it came so fast - it's going to go by so fast too...I'm hoping to savor it as much as I can! I still can't get over the fact that these baby times never come back - every time I look at my 3 year old it baffles me that he has gotten so big.

Leora (born on the 5th) seemed to really focus on rolling Sat., she mastered it & visibly enjoyed it... & today nothing. We transitioned her to the trundle bed last night as my niece will need the bassinet. It was more of an adjustment to sleep w/ her 3 yr. old sister who has yet to sleep through the night. There was a stormy 30 min. & 2 30 min. nursing sessions we had to be awake for for the first time since her arrival but all was smiley when I went to her this morning.

Easton got a tooth!!! No wonder he was so crabby this weekend. My baby boy is growing up.
post #157 of 326
I keep expecting Amadora to get her first tooth--but not yet. She has been practicing sitting up--so far about 30 seconds is her longest, but she always falls sideways or backwards eventually. Fun to work on it! She is also experimenting with food a bit. So far has had squash and avocado but not eating food regularly. Ama is a 21st baby, too!

no teeth here, thank goodness because Berkeley is a biter!! I am not at all looking forward to his little teeth on my nipple. ouch.

We've got a late-June baby here too (she was almost a July baby!) And she was pushing up to all 4s really early and has been scooting and army-crawling all over the place, but no sitting up yet and no true cross-crawling either. My first was full-on cross-crawling just before she turned 5 months, so I was kind of expecting Amelia to be too. But she's not yet, and honestly I'm glad. We have plenty of time for that!

 

But BabySmurf is right, these things have such a WIIIIIIIIDE range of "normal" for when they occur. My first DD walked at 8.5 months, and I've even heard of babies as young as 7.5 months old walking. And I also have friends whose babies waited until 15 months to even attempt walking. All normal. The way I see it, these baby days go by so fast, so the longer they can stay babies the better. Once they're off and moving life becomes much more hectic, and they seem to grow up faster. An early walker is tough, it's like you're instantly in toddler-ville with a baby whose body can do much more than their mind is capable of, or ready for. My Ela was pretty coordinated and FAST, but her depth perception wasn't as advanced as her legs. Also she didn't understand things like heights, or the danger of climbing. It was stressful!

OK, this is kind of off subject for this thread, but I came across a video of my first DD walking in my heels and I just had to share. I think she was almost a year here.
