Milestones...

Just wanted to see what everyone's LOs were able to do these days?

Ashley can roll front to back (though she seems to only do it when MY parents are around....silly girl)

She's getting ready to roll back to front as she will constantly roll to her side and lay there

And I believe she is getting ready to find her feet (she is always laying with them in the air now and sometimes her hand bruch them.....only a matter of time before she grabs on!)

She's also babbleing A LOT these days....and it seems intentional (if that makes sense)

Bruce has rolled front to back, but isn't really doing it consistently.

He talks and giggles a LOT!

He has found his feet and has been trying to chew on them lately.

He is getting really good at sitting up. He has pretty good balance front to back, now he just needs to get the side to side balance. :)

Nicholas will roll front to back sometimes...it is usually only a couple times a week. He can get almost to his side going back to front but his arm keeps getting in the way.

He likes to look at his feet but he hasn't figured out he can grab them yet. He has a bag sitting by his changing table that he grabs the strap when he's being changed.

He likes to babble a lot, in fact we have quite a few conversations with him....when talking with him if you pause when you ask him a question he will answer you back. He will go back and forth for about 10 minutes talking to you. We babysat for my friends 8 month old DD and he got so upset that she could crawl and get to the toys he couldn't reach that he basically started what I think was yelling at her...it was hilarious. You could tell he was very upset but he never cried.

Zaydren has rolled front to back a couple times, and it ticks him off! LOL

He also talks all the time and if I talk to him he'll respond.

He also does the little pushups with his upper body lifting all the way up.

He can also sit up unassisted for up to two minutes.

He also can grab toys in his lap and put them in his mouth and hold them there.

He has the feet in the air but no real grabbing yet.

He bats at toys and reaches for them too.

No rolling for my little girl yet (or at least not since she did it at 9 weeks).

With the tummy time.. just keep at it. Few minutes at a time couple times a day. Even do it on your chest. When she realizes she can lift her head more or roll over she'll probably like it better. Also don't do it right after she eats as might be too much pressure on the belly!

Jenna is rolling from belly to back AND back to belly. The other night I had to keep flipping her back onto her back in the crib at bedtime. She can't roll from belly to back in the crib because of the wedge we have in there for her reflux.

She can sit with a little support and LOVES to stand with support. Her brothers don't like her to stand and they alway push her down. DS1 is afraid that she will walk earlier than he did (5 1/2 months). I think she just likes standing because it takes the pressure off her belly.

She doesn't really play with toys yet - she will stare them down really hard though. She is really quick to grab things though - she will frequently grab her dress or blanket and then bring it to her mouth to chew on. She usually has her hands in her mouth most of the time.

She will sometimes have little conversations with me, but most of the time she is quietly observing everything going on around her - we've started calling her Nosey Rosey. She has also started sticking her tongue out so blowing raspberries won't be far behind.

I am so thrilled with her progress. When we first got word of her genetic disorder I thought we'd be dealing with huge delays and years of therapies, but she is right on track and almost keeping up with where her brothers were at this age.
