Charlotte has reached all her milestones except for crawling.
You put her on her tummy and she shows no interest in crawling whatsover.
Do we have a lazy baby on our hands? Am I expecting too much too soon?
I reckon she'll just get up and walk one day and forget the crawling part.
We had the 8-12 months health review today and there was nothing to worry about. Some babies don't even crawl and just start walking.
There were three other babies and due to more babies being born than there are Health advisors we were all see at the same time.
Shock horror cut backs to NHS?
In fact it was probably better because as the mums and dad (me) sat on the chairs, the babies all sat on the floor with the exception of one that apparantly could not, we could all compare notes and see how our babies are doing.
In fact, by a miracle the baby that could not sit actually sat for the first time on her own. Brilliant.
Sad to see no other dads present which is a shame but I could interact with the other mums on types of things that were going on with our babies.
Come on dads try and make these important occasions and is great to air your fears and worries out in the open.
* Brother James came to visit which always makes Charlotte smile and laugh. She is at that age now when some of our family come over to visit and we hand her over to them for a cuddle she cries but never with James.
Took James to see his first premiership football match last Saturday, West Ham vs Wigan and we won (West Ham that is). He loved it so much he bought a personalized shirt.
It is amazing how I have to switch from being a dad for Charlotte to cater for the needs of my eldest child who is now 11 and obviously has different tastes to his baby sister.
Charlotte mood - one day smiley, babbling and happy baby, the next grizzly baby.
Charlotte feed - eats everything in sight.
Stress factor - tiredness and grizzly days stresses me out but that is enough about me - haha.
