Our child's development is beyond his age! According to Help me grow http://www.ohiohelpmegrow.org/ he should be able to hold his head erect, bobbing, when supported in sitting position, follow moving person with eyes, imitates or responds to smiling person, and vocalize. He does all of these things. Yay!!! In addition to the proper developmental stages that he has reached, he can also (the following things just started happening today!!!! Yipee!!!) roll on to his side, has begun reaching for objects, laughs out loud, and definitely enjoys play. Some of the developmental things that he has begun to do usually don't occur until about 4 months of age. Our son will be 10 weeks old tomorrow! He is off to a great start.
We had a little party in the living room today on the baby Einstein mat! Our baby was kicking, laughing, reaching, rolling, and smiling while mommy danced around and daddy played the guitar. This isn't the partying that my husband and I are used to by any means but it was one of the best parties ever!!! Here is our little guy touching his own head (he also discovered his ears today) and posing for the camera!
