Okay, this post is mostly for me, so I can have a place to keep all the dates of when the kids hit their big milestones because I certainly can’t REMEMBER them! And it might entertain you readers too, especially if you have children who are younger than mine. Some milestones we hit early, some late, and some right on time. This is a post that will be updated as new milestones are hit, so I plan to put a link to it in the sidebar. Enjoy!
Slept all night: R at 2 months, J and Z at 3, and T at almost 6 months
Kicked the pacie habit: R at 4 months, the boys at 16 months
Sat up: R at 6 months, J and Z at 7 months, T at 8 months
Sat up on own: J at 9 months, the rest at 10 months
First tooth: J and R at 6 months, Z at 7, T at 8
Crawled: J and T at 9 months, Z and R at 10
Walked for real: R right after 12 months, Z at 13 months, J at 14 months, T at 15 months
Food: The kids started eating cereal at 4 months, table food at 9 months, sippy cups at 11 months, and had their very last bottles just after 12 months
Words: dada was the first word for each of them, they said the word long before they said it with purposeful meaning. I didn’t start keeping track of words with meaning until they were 16 months old, at which point they all got credit for dada as their first word with meaning. At 16 months their vocabulary was limited to 2-4 words depending on the child. They didn’t reach 50 words until they were 22 months old.
Potty trained: R was day trained by 3 years, 3 months and fully trained by 3 years, 8 months. T was day trained by 3 years, 4 months and fully trained by 3 years, 4 months. J was day trained by 3 years, 7 months.
Should I add any other milestones?
