Baby Milestones

See which milestones to track as your baby grows, hear from other parents experiencing these firsts, and get great ideas for how to record each big (and small) baby event.

Macks is Walking!

It seems as if Macks is following in his big sisters’ footsteps. Literally! Last week as I was about to run out of the door to leave for the train station, I was kissing Macks goodbye. He was standing and holding onto the couch playing with his big sister, Harlan. As I let him go to walk out the door, he let go of the couch and tried to follow me. But instead of crawling behind me, he took five steps and then fell to the ground. 

5 Milestones For Your Baby At Five Months

Ok, am the only one who thinks that five months old sounds way older than four months old?

I mean, it’s only one month away from six months old and then it’s practically time to plan the first birthday party! [insert heartbroken mother's face here]

But believe it or not, my baby is rounding the corner on five months old in just a few days and to help distract myself from the fact that she won’t be my baby for much longer, I thought it could be fun to take a look at some of the important milestones that happen at the five month mark instead!

Our Family's Very Unique Baby Milestone

Baby milestones are pretty exciting, are they not? Whether it’s new teeth or crawling, there always seems to be a magical moment to celebrate with Baby. Along with the typical textbook milestones, there’s a special moment I always look forward to that’s incredibly unique to our family.

Magical Moments from Macks' Tenth Month

As we close out the new year, I am doing a lot of reflecting on what this year has brought myself and my family. We welcomed our beautiful baby boy, Macks, early in the year and he continues to be a blessing for all of us. Macks turned 10 months recently and he is more and more of a joy for all of us. He’s much more interactive and always wants to be involved in family activities.

Take a look at some of his magical moments from the past month:
