As a new mom, I had NOOOO clue what to expect… How could anyone? They don’t come with manuals… I learned something new each and every day….every second actually. So when Brooks was born, I was a little lost or shall I say overwhelmed by the fact it was all new to me. I loved him so very much and wanted to know how to help him grow but never really had the information I needed. I was always very active with him. We read books, baby talked, had tickle time, dressed up (more for me haha), and tummy time each and every day. But I never really knew what milestones I should be working on with him. I am a teacher, so I’ve always had the mentality that a child can do more than you expect. I love to push the limits and teach what should be taught years down the road with my students but as a parent I had no clue how to do that until I received this notebook from Parents as Teachers. It had a list of monthly milestones Brooks should meet every couple of months. As soon as I saw this list, I felt some sort of relief in the fact… “Hey, he is doing some of these things already!” But I also saw a lot on the list that I never even thought he could do. For instance, draw a vertical line or stack at least 3 blocks. With that being said I hope this list helps you as much as it helped me. We are still working on my son’s communication… If only I knew then, what I know now.
I attached the PDF file with the milestones to help other new moms that feel as lost as I did.
