milestones - Page 14
And Kitteh I secretely love the 'stranger danger' stage. There's something very endearing to know that my baby wants me and only me. B has definitely shown some apprehension towards other people, mostly males for some reason. And MIL... That didn't go over so well :-/
Charlie is 7 1/2 months and he just started crawling on Saturday! It was very exciting! He hadn't been practicing much since he learned to sit up because he was all about sitting up. He just started crawling all of a sudden. When he was done going a short distance he sat down and smiled really big. He looked so happy and proud of himself. He is now working on pulling up.
Whew! Our little munchkin had 4 teeth come in on the top, instead of 2!! All breaking through within 2 weeks of one another. Last one finally popped through last night. And now I am looking forward to getting a little more sleep, yay!
He is now exploring every corner and basket he hadn't found before. Time to start keeping the bathroom door closed! The sewing thread basket is keeping him occupied long enough to type this.
So fun to read about what all of your little ones are doing nowadays! I haven't been on here for a while...
Amadora is 8 months old tomorrow! She walks while holding onto our fingers much better than she used to. She has started to stand unassisted, but she usually reaches for us and then we have to catch her! She is not crawling, but scoots on her bottom a little and can scoot a little bit on her belly (mostly backward or turning). We got her a walking toy, and she did walk with it, but now when we try to get her to use it she fusses and reaches for us, lol. Not feeling quite ready I guess, but then at other times she gets so frustrated because she just wants to GO! :)
Wow! I am so very impressed.
I'll let you all know when my baby crawls. Period.
Seriously, are all of your babies just very quick to develop or is Holly just very slow to develop? Its just as well - we haven't yet baby-proofed our house and Holly is quite content to just sit and play w/ the toys around her.
Holly isn't behind at all! Some babies just aren't that interested in movement - too focused on other things...or they just are observers and are content to watch. It's all good ;) I think missing milestones are more just to help pick up on big picture problems....and it wouldn't just be one milestone that the child is missing, there would be other things that would pop up as red flags. I think average for crawling is 9 months? Off hand. Aubrey is hell bent on moving and getting into things, and I swear she has already taken years off my life....can't even imagine what it's going to be like in the toddler (or teen!) years. On the other hand, she is very interested in being social, but hasn't really started talking yet. I think every so often catch her saying a word, but it's not so clear or consistent yet that I can be sure. In terms of baby proofing...there wasn't much I needed to do for my son either, he just didn't really get into things. Aubrey, though....ugh, this girl is CRAZY into everything. It's utterly exhausting.
Wise words pokey! I'm not one to look up when babies should be expected to hit milestones and what not, and we aren't around any other babes ever, plus... being my first, I have no idea if she's late our ahead. For me, I tend to not care about the speed she is developing at (though my mil is constantly trying to compare her to her cousins) and focus more on (Is she happy?) All that to say, try not to worry. Holly will be off and into stuff soon enough!
