Our little blessing!Michael is being called Mick or Mickey. I especially like this because my Dad and Brother are both named Rick and Ricky! This is as close to their name as I can get! Mick has reached some milestones very early.
At his 2 wk check up, the pediatrician said he was at a 3 month level developmentally. He was already rolling over & holding his head up (at 4 days old). He was able to grab at toys and pull them toward him at 4 days old, and began tummy time that early as well, being able to hold his head up!
He is pulling himself up and if you assist him, he walks one foot at a time--so cute!. He is teething already, and we believe this may have began at birth. It is his central left incisor; you can see the white bumps. He is cooing now and smiling at us! He recognizes his name, and looks for us when we call to him. Now at 4 months, Mick is pulling up on things to stand, he can sign mom and milk, he brushes his hair with his hairbrush, and he likes to pet his furry brother Cookie! He just amazes us every day! He started the army crawl as well at 4 months going on 5.
He is smart, inquisitive, and a wonderful little baby boy! We are so blessed!
6 MONTHS to 7 MONTHS
At 6 months, he is already cruising, walking the furniture. He is beginning to drive Cookie nutty!!! He says DaDa, goat, doggie, duck, MaMa, cow, fishy, fafie, no, and go! He is a genius! He is crawling really well now. By 5 months he had figured out the actually crawling mechanics, but 6 months is when he nailed it!
More words! He says GaGa, LaLa, GiGi, More, Cookie, Dog, Hi, and Bye. He is able to move around better by standing to squatting position. He can reach down and pet Cookie from a standing position now. He eats snacks that are finger foods and drinks his sippy cup and bottle by himself. He started using the sippy cup at 6 months, but he needed some help (same with his bottle).
Mick is AMAZING! He now tells the dog: "Cookie, GO!" He uses sign language and speaks for "more" food or drink. He asks for juice. He asks for milk with sign language and verbally. He plays with balls, throwing them to you and trying to catch them. He colors with crayons. He is still teething since as early as 4 months old. He finally has 2 teeth that are coming in~one on top, one on bottom. His favorite toys are his Fisher Price Little People and books, books and more books! He loves to look at books and have you read to him! He likes anything that has buttons to push. HE LOVES ALL MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS!!!! He walks right now by just holding on to one of my fingers. I think he is almost ready to just let go and run! He does stand and balance. I am just waiting for the first step on his own.
Mick was 11 months on Monday! He is getting so big! In the last month, he has grown up so much, not just in height but he just acts more like a little person and not like a baby anymore. He loves blueberry pancakes so I made those for him and froze a bunch so he can have them for breakfast for a while. He loves to find the pieces of pancake that have the blueberries in them and bite really hard into them and squirt blueberry juice everywhere and laugh! Tonight we had spaghetti and meatballs. He loved it! He ate all of it, even what fell onto his lap. LOL! He goes to Day School twice a week at the Methodist Church by our home. He really likes it there. He is learning to socialize with other children his age and other ages. He smiles when he goes now. I'm happy that we decided to send him. Mommy gets some free time to clean and run errands too. :)
