He's Up?

Now, I realize that this may not sound like a huge accompishment, but every little milestone just seems bigger with Ethan. I was sitting on my bed yesterday with Ethan at my side when I realized he was sitting next to me. It seemed odd, because had I guessed, I would of said that I layed him down on the bed. Well, of course I had to rule out if I was in fact going crazy or not. So I layed him back down, and sure enough...............he sat up all by himself! I've been trying not to get too concerned with his physical skills but I have to admit that it still has been bugging me that he is not crawling yet. I was relieved to see that he is still developing and is not just in some rut. However, I do think that he will be crawling soon. He gets where ever he wants go by rolling or by a modified army crawl and he has even been trying to pull himself up to a standing position while in his crib. So, maybe he just needs a few more weeks and then I will be wishing he would stay in just one place. Be careful what you wish for, right?

Yea! Good for him! There's such a huge range of "normal" I wouldn't worry about it. Gretta is perfectly healthy and didn't crawl until she was 10 months old. No biggie.

YAY Good for Ethan! I wouldn't worry about it too. My doctor said that there really is such thing as "laid-back" easy going kids, you are lucky to have one. I haven't been blessed with a laid back spirit to date!
