i feel like Thorian is so behind :( he is so alert and interacts great. he loves everyone and anyone that will pay attention to him. he LOVES his jumperoo and could bounce in it all day. but thats about it. he refuses to roll over. i know he can, he has done it before. he wont even push himself up off his stomach. :(

He used to be a little ball of sunshine around people and now he's all like 'dont you even dare look at me!" Makes me sad. And he wont get his few hours with Nana cause i am not going outside to find my car-literally buried to the roof :x



He just started pushing up on his hands and knees but only does jt around me so everyone thinks im exaggerating lol



I wouldnt worry yet-the pack amd play gives enough room and stability to get moving for now. We have all hard wood(i have a thing about carpets as does brandons boss ,so there arnt any haha)but we need to get a large area carpet so he can get some traction

I wish I could think of a comeback. They think if if they hold her until she stops crying then she'll get used to them o__O either SO or I will go rescue her.

Ughh, i hate when peolle do that. I try not to be that mom that grabs him back immediately but just listening to any baby cry makes my stomach cringe. I have to really fight the urge to be like 'ok, you're done' and grab him back. some people just dont get that the baby is now completely uncomfortable and doesnt feel safe and the best option is to give them back to their parent to calm down.

Brandon's mom calls it 'spoiling' . She is convinced he is spoiled. I never let my daughter CIO -I mean the closest we came to that was the day after her first b day when I threw all the binkies away but that was for an hour or so with me going in there to rub her back and stuff. She is clearly not spoiled.
The doctor I just switched to is a much older lady and she just laughed and said ' there is no such thing as spoiling a baby!" It was nice to have that coming from someone older than brandon's mom so that she wouldn't just think its what young parents do.

Hi ladies!!! We've been gone for quite some time! How is everyone doing :)



G and I are doing great :) 5 months of EBF'ing, and we just started some solids thanks to our great baby bullet. We absolutly love our bouncaroo, and our walker. G loves watching Mickey Mouse in the morning with his brother :) He is just so fascinated by it.
We started sitting up alone a few weeks ago, but he refuses to roll over. The dr said it may be because of his size. We're 27 1/2 " and 20 lbs :)



I can not believe all our babies are five months old!!!!

Adeline is the same, She refuses to roll our dr said it is because of her reflux. She does grab things and laugh he butt off and she does the silliest thing by the back worm she moves across the floor on her back...

Amelia doesn't roll much either, I think she has rolled right over once, other than that she rolls onto her side and that's not very often.



here are some pics :D
