I am going to spend the rest of this post bragging about how almost advanced my kids are.
As a parent I know my kids are the best and most advanced children on the planet so here are some amazing feats my daughters have been able to achieve.
1 month: At 1 month my daughters could lift their heads when lying on their tummies. BAM!
2 months: At 2 months they could all hold up their head up for short periods of time. WHAMMO!
4 months: They smiled, laughed and cooed.
6 months: They could all roll over in at least one direction. WHA WHA!
7 months: They could pull toys toward themselves, although mostly accidental.
8 months: They could almost say Mom and Dad. HOLLA!
10 months: Could crawl pretty good, but not great.
12 months: Can stand holding onto something. YEAH THAT’S RIGHT!
13 months: They could all walk and say “Hi”. (Except Hayley she walked at 15 months… Any other parents have kids that walked at 15 months?… I bet not!)
16 months: Could turn the pages of a book… after an adult helped by opening the page an inch.
19 months: They could all use a spoon and fork, but very poorly.
22 months: Could throw and kick a ball, albeit wildly and completely out of control.
24 months: Can talk in sentences.
30 months: Potty trained, with the occasional turd in the undies.
36 months: Excepted to Yale.
Now I don’t brag about these amazing feats to make you feel like less of a parent. Nor do I highlight these early and advanced achievements because I want you to think your son or daughter is behind the times.
Rather I do it because I love my kids and I am their dad, and dag-nab-it I am going to let the world know how amazing they are.
