Sometimes we take life too serious...especially as moms. We count every day, every month. We analyze every sound or non sound, we stress that they are not walking and talking and someone else's kid or our kids siblings had done so at their age. And while part of this is our job as Moms, we need to learn to just relax and realize that our kids will learn in their own time, their own pace. And all of it is completely normal and natural. Take the pressure of everyone's kids off of your shoulders (most people who brag are not 100% honest about their kids anyhow) and just enjoy your little one. And let them enjoy life and the process of life and learning.
One of my friends swore up and down that her son was sleeping through the night at six weeks old. I went to stay with her for a weekend and the spare bed room was right next to the babies room. I'll be damned if he wasn't up crying at least twice each night. Sleeping through the night my tush.
I don't understand WHY people do that. It's so silly.
For some reason it's the nature of "Mommy Wars".
