Resisting the urge

2nd March 2014

One thing I have been trying very hard not to do is to compare my children. D was fairly late (as textbooks go, which I know are only the vaguest of guides) with his developments, and so far it looks like E will be even later – D started babbling and smiling at 5-6 weeks whereas E is still yet to do any of that at almost twice that age. She also didn’t do any of the head lifting stuff for a while either.

It’s difficult not to think “she should be doing X and Y at Z time because he did” but I’m trying!
