I know babies develop at their own pace, but I thought it might be fun to share your baby's development, achievements and challenges. (not to compare, just for fun and out of curiosity)
So far, my little boy is creeping and lately has started to crawl backwards as well as bounce a bit like a frog (he lifts his bum up and then falls forwards, hilarious to watch). However, he can't yet sit unassisted, and even if supported, he still topples over sideways.
He is discovering his hands and gives high fives when he's in the mood for it. He greets his daddy with a huge smile after work, and reaches his arms towards me when he's not happy on someone's arm. We thought he had started to sign "milk" but it turns out he was just playing with his hand.
He still uses his dummy despite my efforts to get rid of it. He sometimes sleeps through the night, other nights he needs extensive resettling.
He also has his bottom two teeth.
