Being the subsequent born child is always difficult. Everyone starts comparing with the first child, it’s fine if both children are similar. Unfortunately for Luke, his elder sister is a firecracker. She was born a fighter, always eager to be on the go. Ally rolled over very early and could crawl at 5 1/2 months. She was cruising at 6 months and could feed herself quite well by the time she was 8 months old. Max was slightly slower but not too far behind.
Luke on the other hand is a very laid back child. He loves to watch the world go by, without a care in the world. At 5 1/2 months, he can grab his toes and stick them in his mouth. That’s about it. He hasn’t rolled over yet, he can support his head if you place him on his tummy, but not for a very long time.
Matt and I aren’t concern about his development at this stage, by now we have learned that babies will do things in their own time, when they are ready. In the meantime I am savoring my last baby, in all his chubbiness and taking in that gorgeous baby smell which I wish would last forever.
