Since Ethan was born 2.75 months early, there are things I’m noticing, along with other friends and family, that he does still that a 5 month old is leaning and then there are other things he does that a 8 month old will do.
Does he feel like a 8 month old trapped in a 5 months old’s body? Or does he feel like a 5 month old who’s ahead of the game? I’m hoping the latter because I feel bad for the little feller. Ugh, so many questions!!!
I can see the frustration in his eyes when he wants something and he can’t make himself go get it yet. He wants to be active and go, go, go. But Instead he lays on his belly crying staring at what he wants rolling around in circles. He can observe his surroundings, people, and interact with a conversation. I’m not sure how many 5 month old’s can do that. I’m just glad that Mr. Ethan is such a happy baby. It’s a daily reminder that I am doing something right.
