Lexi finally rolled over from back to front today! I missed the actual event because I was using my iPad for online shopping! I had her on her back on the playmat. I looked up and she was on her side, trying to flip over, but getting stuck. I got up, placed her back on her back, and went back to my iPad. I look up about 30 seconds later, and she was on her tummy! I've been worried bc she's been behind the pack in this group on rolling and sitting. But, she is scooting backwards now, and getting up on all 4s now occasionally. She still can't sit unassisted yet, but is getting stronger. So hopefully soon!
Yay! So exciting when they reach a milestone. I cried the first time Brian rolled over and when I saw the first tooth coming, I was so proud! Shudder to think what I'll be like when he does something that really requires some skill!
Yay! I worry about Avery sometimes too. My cousin had her baby a week after me and lives in the same city as my mom 10 min away so everyone is always comparing the two of them. He was born at 40 weeks though and is like 8 lbs bigger than she is. I have to constantly tell people she's on track developmentally and can't be expected to keep up with a baby almost twice her size.
^^Id honestly try to nip that in the bud quickly. I am born 9 months after a set of my twin cousins and it was nothing but comparisons for pretty much my whole life growing up. And, sadly, I always fell short according to the people "measuring" us. So I do think it affected my thoughts about myself and the members who chose to do the comparing. It was only to the girl twin (not the boy), so maybe you can avoid it as they age because they are not the same sex. But I am super-cautious not to compare my kids to each other or anyone else to their faces (or when they would be aware). It wasn't healthy for me. (Although I definitely turned into the cooler person )
But yay for Lexi! Watching them learn new things is so exciting and rewarding. It feels like it's all worth it when they figure something new out
