This month, Henry: - Steadily raises his head and chest during tummy time - Pushes down on legs when held against a surface (usually my lap) - Began "talking" to us (via "coos" and "whoos") - Swiping at, and then grasping, hanging toys - Rolled over from front to back (wooo whoo!)
After being home with Henry for over a month, Rod went back to work and Henry started daycare. Our provider (Cathy) runs her daycare out of her home and has only four children. She sends us home with a "report-card" at the end of each day to let us know how his day went. She raised three very successful sons (one is currently in a PhD program at UC Davis) and she keeps in touch with her previous families. Cathy was highly recommended to us and we already feel we can trust her. Her excellent record helps to take the edge off of my mommy-anxiety, but unfortunately it doesn't take it away completely. My guess is the mommy-anxiety never completely goes away; it's just part of the job.
