I would just like to hear what milestones other babies my daughter's age are reaching. Lillian's bday is the 22nd.

Her milestones:

Rolled over from her back to her belly at 3 months; belly to back a couple weeks later.

Sat up w/o assistance at 5 months.

Began crawling at 8.5 months

Just now beginning to pull up to her feet but has been pulling up to her knees for about a month.

She doesn't say any real words but has been making sounds like "dada, nana, baba" forever it seems. However, no '"mama" yet:( lol.

She will pick up the remote and hold it to her ear like a phone as well.



Thanks!!

My daughter Alexia was born 12/6 and I thought that she was doing really good...

Tummy to Back-2 1/2 months

Back to Tummy-3 months

Sitting- 4 1/2 months

Crawling- 8 months

Pulling self up-8 1/2 months

Self Standing- 10 months

First word, Momma-10 months



She is not eyt walking but if I hold one of her hands she will walk. She takes one step and realizes its easier to just crawl. She is the fastest crawler I have ever seen though. She has 3 teeth but they havent came in all the way yet. she makes the funniest sounds. She will growl at you if you say something she doesnt like or yell at you if you try to talk overr herr. Also if you sing she will sing with you and hum as well. She loves cell phones and remotes and will fake text message and talk on the phone. She plays fetch with herself with a ball...cutest thing...she also feeds herself and can drink from a straw and normal cup. She also claps, waves hello and says bye-bye, and normal baby babble!!

Jack was born Dec 17 @ 12:51am (My water broke on the 16 @ 8am and I was to be induced the morning or the 17, meaning I would have him around 3 in the afternoon of the 17, but Jack had different plans if that gives you an indication of what he is like.)

I don't remember specifics, but I know he has always been slightly advanced in his milestones, mainly because he is the youngest of 3 new babies in my close circle of friends..trying to keep up, apparently.

I know he was standing up on his own in his crib mid July, because my husband was on his yearly backwoods hiking trip and I had to run down stairs to get my camera to catch the moment. He's been standing with assistance since around month 2 (better view---he's nosy.)

Jack has been bopping to music for months while sitting. He just began dancing standing up, as of Nov 8th (my Aunt's 50th surprise shindig--he did the PeeWee Herman--no lie, I was cracking up and wishing I had remembered my video camera.)

Walking, he's close to target. This week has been all about the advances of moving while standing up. He is doing the shuffle, shuffle plop and the step, step, step, leeaann and grab furniture for support (always afraid he is going to land on his face.)

He has been clicking his tongue for a few months and we swear he is making the rolling "r" sound that you hear in spanish words or the "ruffles have ridges" comercial. For the longest time, he would make a sound like he was under water and we nicnamed him, "Jack Cousteau, under water exporer."

He loves to talk, but no real words. He makes the sounds, "dadadada", "bababa", "mamama", "gagaga", "daga" and just yells "aaahhh" in different lengths and volumes. He knows what "no" means (though he chooses not to listen already,) and he shakes his head "no" in response to us. My friend's almost 3- year old used the word "actually" in proper context the other week. She has been saying words since she was 1, her brother (1 year today,) is just starting to make the sound, "mamama." Just goes to show that kids develop at their own rate even within the same family.

Jack LOVES to press buttons on the phone or the remote. He also knows that if he presses the remote while facing the TV it will change what is on the screen. He loves to pull magnets off the fridge and hand it to you, then take it back and stick it on the fridge or in his mouth then on the fridge.



It is so much fun writing about what my little guy is up to and reading over what other parents are writing...I had to stop reading because it made me remember something else Jack was doing (I deleted a lot off this before posting and it's still miles long.)



Diane, I hope this was helpful. And to those who are afraid their child is behind, just remember it is target projections of what you child could be doing...use the books as guidelines...get to know your child, not what the book says your child should be. If you know your child, you'll know if there really is a need for worry.

Joey was born on the 13th.
He rolled over at 4 mos.
Crawling about 7-8 months.
Pulled himself up constantly for the last couple of months and started his first steps early November. He's really getting good at walking and can now bend down to pick up and item and stand back up.
Lots and lots of babbling but no real words yet - at home! He apparently will say Hi at daycare when someone comes in. He also discovered he can make these really great loud screeching noises...love that! LOL

this was so great to read! i've tried not to read anything about milestones because i know that a children develop at different stages and i don't need to worry unnecessarily. i found that my daughter is right on track with most of the posts here. the BEST thing that i have read is that she is not the only one that says dada constantly and only says mumma when she is tired or hurt! that made me feel much better.

HellOo! My son rolled over at about 6 months!!. Pretty late but everything started after that : Crawled at 7 months, Stud up at 7 and a half...cruising with help (like a sofa...!) at 8 and started to walk alone at 9 and a half months old! Since then he's been everywhere!!! LOL He does say a few words like " Maman" "papa" "Attend (wait)" "doux (Soft)" "non(Yeah terrible 2 already!!) " Sometimes he'll say "A" for "Allo" and "ba" for "Bye".

He does take any object in his hand a put it to his hear like a phone..been a month or two now that he does it...He just loves talking on the phone...specially a real phone!!

Lily was born on the 21st...she rolled over at about 3 months, started crawling well at 6 months, started pulling up around 7 months and was walking on her own by 9 months. Now she says dada, kitty, hi, up and a few other words, she only says mama when she is upset. She claps her hands and she's been waving since about 7 months. She also climbs like crazy and is almost running.

Amelia was born on New Years Eve. She rolled over at 4 months, both ways. Started sitting by herself at 5 months. Pulled herself up to standing at 7 months, started crawling a day later...and pretty much only crawled to something to pull herself up to standing. Started walking alone at 9 months and now she's walking EVERYWHERE. She says bye bye and waves, she just started that last week. Otherwise, its just babble sounds.

Oh, and she does the remote to her ear and babble thing too, which is just too adorable!

Aiyana has been crawling since she was about 5 months, pulling herself to standing at 7 months, she has 9 teeth, and is able to wave bye-bye, and clap her hands, when we say peek-a-boo, she slaps her hands over her eyes, babbling ALOT. Still not walking unassisted, but is standing unassisted. Her birthday is December 12th.

I have a greatnephew a day older than my son! He is completely walking now and even putting some words together like "got it." It bothered me a bit to start with, but then I have to remember that he will do things in his own time and some things he has done before Michael (greatnephew), plus my son has had a lot of breathing problems which has slowed him down!!



We as mothers must be patient and just encourage the milestones and they will come with due time!!

You can tell every child is different and tho it is fun to compare, at times it's not fair to your child if you think they have to keep up w/ everyone else. I have learned to enjoy my son no matter what stage he's in. Yes, I've heard of some younger than Eric talking and I think well son you better be starting too but He is PERFECT just the way he is. No matter how big or small they are and no matter what they do or don't do, They are perfect because God made them!!

Birthday - 14th
Back to front roll - About 2 months
Sitting - 5 months
Crawling - 6.5 months
Rolling Over (stomach to back) - Two or so days after crawling
Pulling Up - Just before 7 Months
Pushing Items (Shopping Carts, etc) - 8.5 Months
She says lots of things, but none of them are distinguishable. "dadada" is preferred to "mamama", but she will do both. She is also starting to combine syllables lie "daba"

Connor will be one years old 12/12. He too clicks his tongue! He can point to his nose when we ask him "where is your nose", brushes his hair, puts the phone to his ear, points to whatever he wants...or maybe just wants to hear me say the word of what he is pointing to. He just started to stand unassisted. Just typical one year old behaviors/interests. It is good to hear what other little ones are doing. If everyone had said their little ones are talking up a storm I would have been bighting my nails right now...ha ha!

Oh and she's been doing "pat-a-cake" since before she was 5 months. So I guess that gives me some bragging rights since that seems to be early:) lol

I know you're not suppose to compare children--they're all different. But of course I can't help but to compare her to everyone!

I know someone that told me her child (who's a month younger than Lillian) is already talking! She was serious. Said her child can say momma, dadda, kitty, puppy, gramma, nana, bye-bye, hi and her own mother's name. I don't believe it.

I may just be modest with the bragging of what my daughter says. But I really think she is just making sounds, not WORDS.

Her ped. says she's right on track and even ahead of the average ranges of milestones but it feels like every other baby I know is doing things way before her.

In the end, she is perfect to her daddy and me so what's to worry?? We love her no matter what!!

I thought it would be good to look at this, but I realize he is doing even less than I thought! Well- I have a stubborn son (born the 8th). Some things he did early (rolling over), but now he has his own way of doing things. He doesn't crawl forward, but goes in circles real well! He likes to hold onto your hands and walk- that's new. He says 'dada' all day long and doesn't say mama either. He will hold a whole conversation with you- just no real words yet. He likes to give slobbery open mouth kisses to mommy, daddy and the puppy (when he sneaks them). He has recently become a mommy's boy and wants me to hold him if he sees me.

My son was born on the 7th.

He rolled over at 3 months, crawled at 5 1/2 months, sat unsupported at 5 months, took 1st steps at 8 1/2 months and was walking good by 9 months. He doesn't say too many words yet. Does say dada & mama. He's a big copy cat and has already sounded like he has tried to say tickle, tickle, kitty and no no! He loves remotes and cell phones. He points the remote towards the screen and starts mashing buttons.

Hayden was a 30 week preemie so he might be slightly "off".
He rolled around 5 months. He learned to crawl at 9 months. Now he pulls up on EVERYTHING and cruises. He stood alone briefly yesterday. He'll be 1 December 8.

My son, Trace, was slow with a lot of things, in the last couple months he has really just started doing alot. He rolled from front to back early! I have a great nephew a day older than my son and it seems that for the most part, he flew through everything and Trace has just lagged behing. This week Trace has started trying to walk behind a toy and pull up! He is saying more words of course, he will not say a new word without Daddy teaching it to him!
