From Day One, Trey has been holding his head up. The moment they placed him on my chest after birth, he lifted his head. He is now trying to pull himself up to a sitting position from his back yet he can't do it. He "face scoots"...army crawls with his face...he kicks his feet back to push and he pushes on his face (I'm trying to get video of it). Also he is teething and now he is holding his bottle when we give him one. WHAT THE HECK CHILD....SLOW DOWN.
Anyone else feel like their kid skipped over the baby/infant part and wants to grow up faster? Give it, Aidan (my oldest) was sitting by 5 months and walking by 8 months
Tristan held his head up from birth but so did my DD. My DD was rolling all the way over at 2 weeks. So does Tristan. She was sitting up at 3 months. Tristan already sits on his own and pulls himself to seated from laying flat on his back(he did that one in front of his Dr and she was shocked). My dd was crawling at 4 and a half months and said her first word at 4 and a half months. Tristan is already pushing himself up on all fours into a crawling position and rocking back and forth and he belly crawled over a month ago and just this week looked right at my DH and yelled DADA!!! And now he says Dada anytime he sees my hubby. I thought this was all normal and honestly had no clue I man after all my daughter did all this stuff at about the same time until both the pediatrician and about 4 family members said this is not normal. Part of me does wish he would slow down but at the same time I know he is choosing his own pace and that's what matters.
That is very true that they are doing it at their own pace but it feels like my oldest grew up too fast and after 7 years of not having a baby, I want this one to last a bit as we aren't sure when we will have another. we have to get on our own first before thinking of another but I prefer to have one more before 35....we'll see if that happens
