Babies and Bumbos

by Juliemara

I’ve been getting these daily emails from various parenting websites about my babies at whatever week they are that week and what they will do and what I can do to help them reach these developmental milestones. As the girls approach four months old they are suppose to be grasping things, enjoying various textures and rolling over?! Ummm, yeah, not so much of this going on in our house. You saw how they were “holding” their toys in this post, well that’s an every now and then occurrence, definitely not an all the time thing. And sure they like textures when they accidentally notice one, like this shirt I wear and love and probably won’t see their first birthday since they love to stick their little fingers in the holes of the lace and pull.

But when we read the fuzzy yellow ducklings with all it’s different textures it’s not like they are reaching out to feel the scratchy blue crescent or the wooly grey rectangle, they barely react when we put their hand on a page.

And rolling over, sure they have done that since the week we brought them home, but it’s only because they hate tummy time.

I get that they were a month early so they have this adjusted age thing and I’m sure I’m just being paranoid but I am looking forward to discussing their progress with the pediatrician at their four month appointment next week. But in the mean time we keep giving them toys to hold, textures to touch, building back and neck strength with tummy time and practicing head control in the bumbos.

      They are starting to notice and pay attention to each other more and more, it’s so cute when they do. Even if it is by accident!
