Baby Jo in the Ergo, ready to go out!

The weather is gorgeous and I’m healing well from my c-section, so we’ve finally been able to go out on the beautiful trails around campus for some family walks! I’ve been very eager to get back out there. The trails are my favorite feature about where we live. Last August, I had started running on them regularly. Soon I’ll be able to start training for a 5k again on these trails!

Morning Walks With C

What I love most about our new campus home is that there is an abundance of greenspace.  It’s so wonderful to be surrounded by trees, grasses and prairie.  C and I enjoy going out for morning walks together.  He loves riding in his stroller!

Skipping Milestones?

Have your children ever skipped milestones?

C never wants to sit down.  He always stiffens his body up to stand.  Whenever we’re lucky enough to get him to sit, he arches his back in protest.  He *LOVES* to jump and stand.  He won’t even roll over when on his stomach (even though he did that at 2 months of age…).  I’m not surprised that he won’t roll over from his back to belly because he has zero interest in being on his belly.  He ONLY wants to stand.  I have a feeling he will refuse to learn to sit or roll and just go straight to walking.
