Hello. My 6month old DD is pretty much crawling, can pull herself up on furniture, has sat unaided for a good month or 2, will walk when you holder her hands etc.
I feel like she is growing up too fast! Everywhere I go people say "wow, never seen such a small baby do that" (she is very small for her age, 3-6months clothes still baggy (13lb 14).
Is this normal? I feel like she was only a "baby" for a couple of weeks, as by the time she was about 4 weeks old, she had no interest in lying down and wanted to be standing (with an adult holding her hands etc). I feel in a way like I missed out on having a very young baby!
Sorry, I have ust re-read and it all sounds a bit mad! But I am very tired and sleep deprived and about to go to bed!
My ds was like this. He held his head up from day 1, he rolled over about 3 months and could sit up at 4 months. He didn't crawl til 9 months though but he pulled up on furniture and cruised a long time before this. He always wanted to be up on his legs. Very independant, hated being laid down. I look at my friend's babies who were just so placid and just laid in their cot or pram. My ds was struggling to get out and screaming to stand up and be walked around!
I have no idea what it's like to have a small baby really cos mine never acted like one! I can't imagine having a baby that was placid and actually laid down for any length of time!
My dh was also like this though and he walked at 8 months!!!!! Scary!
