    Default The grass is always greener...

    DS is meeting milestones early....sitting up at 5months, crossing the room before 6 and now pulling himself up and trying to walk on furniture at 7months.

    I am soo proud of him for this and its amazing to watch...but its exhausting! He doesn't want to sit still for more than 30seconds at a time.

    I see other babes who will sit quietly and play and think "oh why can't DS do that"?.

    Others with busy babes...did they slow down eventually?

    Heh... they don't slow down, they become more independent and reliable and you don't have to follow them around (as much... eventually). Enjoy your baby, he sounds like a go-getter!!

    DD rolled from birth (the dr's said it was b/c she was so small), army crawled by four months, full crawling soon after, standing up at 6.5 months, etc, and she hasn't stopped yet. In fact I have many pictures of her sleeping in her high chair b/c she couldn't move and would eventually give in there when she wouldn't anywhere else. I'm hoping DS is a little less active.

    Yale is delayed, but now that he is catching up, he's busy. His Dad strikes me as one to have been a busy baby too because his never sits still... I don't think it ever ends.

    Dunno, cos mine were late bloomers when it came to crawling (ten months) walking (fifteen months) and so on.
    However they could army crawl like there was no tomorrow, or roll around like crazy, so I still had ot babyproof etc really early.

    I do recall dreading the crawling phase though lol. Then their hands are touching everything, knees getting hurt on cement or hidden dangers in the grass etc. The problem of being out and they want to get down and crawl and all you can think is “it's the mall floor....how germy could you get?!“ and they aren't happy in the lap anymore, want down down down no matter where or what dangers lol. Aw I dreaded thecrawling phase. Was sooo much easeir with dd than ds, as dd bum bounced. Much less chance of damaging yourself if you're cushioned by a diaper and clothes than crawling on hands and knees. Jus had to watch out for low hanging branches and stuff lol.

    Hope your lo slows down a bit soon for ya
