Developmental Milestones

If you have been reading my blog for a while, or know me IRL, then you know that Taylor is mobile now. She can get ALL over by crawling. Not on all fours, yet, but by doing the army crawl. She is pretty darn good at it too.

But I am a smidge concerned that she is still not sitting up unassisted. I mean like not at all. The minute you sit her up she thrusts herself backwards. Refuses to sit up. I know that about 90% of babies can sit unassisted by 8 months, so I am hoping that nothing is wrong. I always remember the boys sitting up way before 8 months, and I know that all kids are different. I still can't help but be a little worried.

She is hitting all her other milestones. She rolls from front to back and vice versa. Crawling, babbling, just not sitting unless she is in your lap. I guess I could always talk to the doctor if I was really concerned. She will go for her 9 month check up at the beginning of the month, I guess I could give her until then, and if by that check up she isn't sitting say something.

Just a paranoid momma! At what age did your kids learn to sit unassisted?

You know, I don't remember when my kids sat up unassisted ... but if I've learned one thing in my 9 years (as of tomorrow!) of being a mom, it is to always trust your instincts and intuition. FWIW, I think that sounds like a plan to mention something at her 9 month checkup, especially since it is coming up sooner rather than later. And if you aren't satisfied with the answers you receive, then perhaps a second opinion.

Will keep you and your beautiful Taylor in my thoughts! Keep us posted, as you are able to (and wish to).
