Why sleep when you can sit up in your crib instead?
This week Levi mastered a new skill: Pushing himself from his tummy into a seated position. I think he was motivated to get himself onto his bum after seeing a friend do it at a play date last week. Now, this friend can also pull himself to standing, but if we’re being honest… I’m okay with Levi not doing that yet. I fear he’ll no longer feel like my little baby once he’s vertical, and I’m not ready to give that up yet.
Of course, I know the choice is not mine, and I obviously don’t want to hold back his development. But maybe we don’t have to rush that milestone. I have no worries that Levi will eventually be up on two feet and then will be walking, so why not stay on on all fours for just a little bit longer?
Can anybody tell that I’m starting to get anxious at the thought of my baby guy turning one in just a few short months? I’ve really been trying to not think about it, although I do have to start planning his first birthday party. My parents and in-laws have been nagging –erm, asking — me about it since February! Perhaps I’ll begin brainstorming this weekend…
