I have been told that usually around 6-8 months old is when you really have your 'ah-ha' moment. Thus far developmentally there has been very little difference between what Will is doing and what a typical child his age is doing. Around 6 months a typical child will take off and conquer many milestones very quickly. As we have been warned and been prepping ourselves for, Will's development will come, it will just be much slower. Since many of our friends are turning one and on the move, I have been trying to find the silver lining to all of this and this is what I have come up with so far...I will have more time to cuddle Will before he wants to always be put down...I have a few more months to get my house baby-proofed...I don't have to worry that Will is going to pick up stray crumbs and put them in his mouth yet...and I can still get pretty good pictures of him since he is not completely mobile yet!
We are practicing with the spoon and sipply cup in this picture. Will is such a big boy!
