His gross motor skills to me are quite developed, he has been sitting up for months now and is rolling all over the place, he can reach for toys, feed himself big items of food, clap and run around in his walker but it was his fine motor skills and speech that concerned me.

He at that stage was choosing to shout and scream if he wanted something, occasionally saying "mummmummmmaaa" and was yet to pick up tiny objects with his fingers.
I shared my worries with Joe and my family and they all said the same thing, he will learn in his own time.
The next day much to my amazement my little boy showed me how right they were. He started to say "Bababa" sucking in his bottom lip is now his new favourite thing. I also sat him down with some Rice Krispies and to my amazement he picked one up between his thumb and forefinger and popped it in his mouth!

He has also started to bring his belly up off the floor so crawling shouldn't be far off and he can stand against the sofa for long periods of time.
|He can even send a text!|
I am fascinated by how fast he learns new things and am so proud that he proved me wrong. I will never doubt his development again and am so excited to find out what he will learn next!
