I've been getting lots of questions as to whether or not the girls are mobile yet. My answer? Nope! Not even close! The girls continue to hate tummy time. That said, I appreciate all of the comments I got from my fellow bloggers, and I am no longer concerned that they won't crawl or walk or turn into perfectly normal little toddlers. . .eventually! Whew! Thanks for the reassurance ladies!
So, what have we been doing about our lack of mobility? Well, our back-up nanny (Michelle) has been working with the girls a lot on tummy time on the days she is here, and the girls really are getting better at tolerating it. They still don't make it even 5 minutes on their tummies, but I can tell they are getting stronger every day and one of these days are simply going to take off (you know. . maybe in like a month). I'm enjoying my time not having to chase them around and am of course not in any hurry to have them mobile! BUT. . .when everyone else's babies are doing it, well, I guess I'm a bit of a competitor at heart and want my babies to be up there at the front of the line too!
Eh, it's a work in progress. Bri can get her chest fully off the floor though. That's good, right? Livvy still has no desire and would much prefer to roll over or bury her head in the carpet. That girl is going to need some serious motivation to get up and going! She loves to just sit and watch what is going on. No need to move. That little girl is a sponge. She's analyzing everything going on around her. Am I in trouble or what?!
The girlies during typical tummy time - note that Livvy is trying to project herself over instead of practicing a crawling position? Crazy kiddo!
Ah! I actually got Liv to look up for long enough to take a picture! Sweet!
Bri being her happy self for a couple of minutes during tummy time =)
Why on earth do we moms feel that it's a competition between our kids and the kids around us? Why do we want to be the best? Is it just human nature?
Hope you guys had a great week!!
