Stay At Home Moms

My Baby Isn’t Walking Just Yet

Hi Is This Normal, Is it normal that I worry so much about my baby meeting all the CDC milestones? Is it me or are all the other kids super advanced? Why does my neighbor’s son walk at 8months but my daughter will not even crawl yet? Dear Milestone Marker, It’s TOTALLY normal to compare […]
