Ok so I really don't have much to offer on this post about any specific research topic. But I was pondering, which I do often, about Conner's development. He is about to turn 8 months old and the little cutie IS NOT CRAWLING YET! And yes, I know, I know...not every baby crawls, and they do it at all different ages. So I guess this got me thinking about other aspects of his development and I thought I would pose some questions for other Mommies out there (or Grandmas, people with an opinion, hell cats and dogs if you please).

1) What age did your baby begin to crawl? Did you do "tummy time" and if so, did they seem to get cranky doing tummy time after a while?

2) When did your baby get teeth? Which teeth came in first? Were there any signs of teething?

3) When was the first word said?

4) Was your baby smaller/cubbier than normal? Did anyone have a smaller baby that has turned into a golly-green-giant of a kid?

Ok if I have missed anything else important that deserves ratiocination, please do tell.

And by the way...babies in blue jeans.EFFING.CUTE.

Hope everyone is doing well and has a fabulous day! Oh and if you could comment here on the blog that would be helpful. Not everyone has a Facebook account and, dear me, I would not want anyone to miss out on all the special little nuggets of input :D

    I can't really answer these questions from a mommy stand point, but I had a nephew who never crawled. Instead, he would do the butt drag!

    1. Naomi was easily 9 or 10 months before she learned to crawl. She was also 15 months when she learned to walk.

    2. First teeth, lower bottom ones. About 10 months.

    3. She was saying "dadada" at 7 months (never "mamama" -- boo.), but real "words" at 12 or 13 months. She was talking WAY before she learned to walk.

    4. She was 5 lb 12 oz at birth (almost "low birth weight", at 3 weeks early)...by 7 months or so she was CHUBBY, and stayed that way till she learned to walk. Now, she is pretty tall and lean. Also, her daddy is 6 foot 4, so she has that going for her, lucky girl!

    We were kinda bad parents, in that we were old school and would put Raph to sleep on his tummy. So, the kid got TONS of tummy time. He rolled over at 4 months, was sitting up by 5 months, and doing the crawl by 6 months. He stood up about a month later and by 10 months (I remember because it was Thanksgiving and we were at my parents), he was walking pretty well!
    His first teeth I think started coming in around the 7 month mark. Tons of drooling, and he would be fussier around night-time, but not anything too major.
    His first word was dada - little stinker - I guess it was around 8 or 9 months. He's not a real big talker At All, but is doing much better since he's gone to the big-kids class in daycare :)
    And Raph was just the opposite as far as chubbiness went. He was a pretty hefty baby but got longer and skinnier as he got older.... Read More

    Let me know if you have an Qs :)

    1. Both were late crawlers (about 9 months); yes we did tummy time; yes they would get pissy after a while (piano that activated by kicking seemed to work longer).
    2. Don’t remember exactly, but think we got one of the front teeth around 4 months; DROOL was the first indicator followed by grumpiness
    3. Have they ever not talked? I know they were both early on this one but can’t remember when.
    4. Both were/are off the charts for everything—height, weight, head, etc.

    Now that I just typed all this, I think you wanted me to put it on your site. Feel free to copy/paste.

  5. When Conner is 11 - 13 months, he will stand up and take off running. (and when he does... you won't be able to catch him!) Several people from my office said that their kids never crawled. Some people don't like being on their stomach - I bet they are the ones who don't crawl. Baby Collin was a crawler - at a year he took a step, after spreading the news that he was "walking," he decided that he got around faster on all fours.
