Another short update on Baby Martin's progress. I'm beginning to get the hang of monitoring his progress as he grows up, asking around and slightly comparing with the usual baby's development. Well, at 6 months and 3 days old, I would have expected Baby Martin to turn with ease and maybe start crawling.
|Good morning! I just bathed and am ready to turn!|
As with any other parent out there, I am guilty of comparing my kid with other babies of the same age, hence it was with a slight tinge of disappointment that Baby Martin could not turn with ease nor crawl yet. Anyway, I do know every baby has their own different range of development, and am not too worried.
|Ready to turn, Baby Martin?|
On a hazy Saturday morning, yes the haze has come to Kuala Lumpur, I decided to just stay indoors and play with Baby Martin for a little bit, checking out how he does his usual turn from the upright position to lying on his back. He can only go one way, and cannot actually turn from his back to the upright crawling position.
|Check out how I turn Mummy, Daddy, and Grandmum! :)|
|Success! Now don't mind me as I play with my feet.|
Oh well, here's looking forward to a couple more weeks where the expectation is for him to start crawling. Daily, we do try to strengthen his neck and give him some time on his mat to try crawling. Well, that ends my short update on Baby Martin's progress, be sure that there will be more coming as the journey continues.
