I took Harper to her 9 month appointment with her pediatrician this week. I was given a milestone checklist upon check in (which I had no time to fill out in the waiting room because at 9 months, they prick H's finger for tests and then tell me that they no longer put band aids on children because they should swallow them. The lack of a band aid leaves me with a baby full of blood stains and my fingers as her gauze).
Does your child "walk" next to the couch? Nope, she can't sit up yet. Does your child crawl? Nope, she can't sit up yet. Does your child take steps unassisted? Nope, she can't sit up yet.
Thank goodness for Harper's reputation at the clinic as being adorable, cute, and heart melting. Because the nurse took the checklist from me and told me to not worry about it. Instead, she asked me questions that could answer in a positive tone, rather than selecting NEVER for all of their questions.

My competitive spirit is what will drive me crazy but it is what I need to use to help Harper thrive!
