Developmental milestones...

Elsa is my little developmental milestone overachiever. She is not even 4 months yet and she is doing so much. She loves following Sophie with her eyes. She is always interested in what she is doing. When Elsa is laying on her back, she will turn herself in circles to keep an eye on Sophie. She does this by pulling her legs up to her chest, rolling over to her side and then throws her head way back. By the time she has done this 4 or 5 times, she has made a complete circle. Her head control is absolutely amazing and she can push herself pretty high when on her belly. She also brings both hands to midline, clasps them together and then raises them above her head. She will grasp objects dangling above her head. When given a toy, she will bring it to her mouth. She loves to chew on toys and her hands. She is my little talker...a true Widmann!!! She loves playing with her toes and tries to bring them to her mouth. She bears weight on her legs. She smiles and laughs. She recognizes her immediate family and cries when strangers get too close.

Before Elsa, I hated the developmental milestone chart. It was always upsetting to read them. Even though Sophie continues to develop, she has always been about 10 - 14 months behind on the charts. So you can say, I have a love-hate relationship with the chart.
