MOBILITY AND OTHER MOVING ISSUES......

Stuff with Tate are exploding around here....

blog
  • Tate has always been a busy girl. Always observant, always wiggling. Lately, her wiggling has met purpose. She is still not crawling, but will sit on her toosh and scoot from place to place.
  • Tomorrow I have an appointment to her Tate to be assessed by Early Childhood Intervention. I am sure they will give me some pointers on how to get my gal crawling and walking.
  • In her bed she is one wild sleeper. In the past, she would sleep on her back and her left side. Now I will find her on her tummy on the opposite side of her bed. She seems to prefer sleeping on her tummy.
  • We are big into the "OH OH" drop game. She will say "OH OH" when she is ready to drop food in her high chair. Mesa loves this kind of "OH OH" game. Me?? Not liking it to much when I am trying to drive and have a sweet baby dropping toys.
  • Tate has always been real social. In church the other day, she saw her friends Tiffany, Liza and Sollie. She flapped her arms saying hi so hard it looked like she was about to take flight.
  • Tate is into smacking lip kissing. She will give momma a kiss when requested. Sometimes the smacking happens after contact and I get an open slobber mouth, but all kisses are cherished my me.
  • We have an activity center that Tate's Fairy Godmother gave her. It is full of fun things and a musical keyboard for playing. It is also a bouncy thingy. In the past, Tate has loved the musical component on this center. Today, she could not get enough of some WILD jumping.
  • I really think it is just a matter of weeks before she is crawling all over the house.

One thing that I remember my pediatrician saying was just love what they are doing at that moment and not focus on what they should be doing i.e. crawling, walking, talking etc.

Nate and Em said...

Good luck with crawling! It is a blessing and a challenge:)

Catherine said...

Growing and changing every day! Oh will things change for you when she's crawling! Have fun momma.

Tracy said...

You are growing so big - and I think your hair rocks Tate! It's adorable.

Kramer said...

She is doing more and more each day. I bet she is crawling very soon and then you are going to get you some major exercise! Of course I love the picture!

Tiffany said...

What a great picture! We loved Tate's reaction at church, too! I know you're enjoying each little stage with Tate, but it will be a relief when she's resolved some of those gross motor issues. I can't wait to hear what the EI people say.

Donna said...

...and then the fun REALLY begins!

Kayce said...

Man she is just adorable! I'll never forget the day Jacob started walking and now I'm sending him off to high school tomorrow. Enjoy all the moments!!

Karen and Bob said...

Ok, I am partial to my own girl, but your little one runs a close 2nd! She is just too adorable.

We have been out of town for a week. So great to get caught back up and to hear and see that Tate is doing well.

The Tongginator was a late walker, too. They'll probably have some great tips for you - I know our infants and toddlers PT was very helpful.

LOL!!! "oh-oh" is the universal game of toddlers I reckon!!! Tari loves it too!!!

Gosh, Tate is just so gorgeous! I beyond happy you finally have her in your arms!
