Maybe it’s because he’s trying to impress Adri his future wife, or maybe I was pregnant a month longer than I thought, but either way, we have an ultimately strong baby. Here is a short list of his massive strengths from birth to 3 weeks:
1. He must have come out holding his head up, or just been bored being upside down for so long. This kid will hold his head up for minutes at a time.
2. A day or two after arrival out of the womb he did a push-up. He did a hands and knees push-up off my chest and held it for a bit. What? I can’t even do that. He still likes to do those, but he uses his elbows more now, probably because he’s gotten lazy.
3. About a week ago I put him on his stomach for some tummy time. I guess he hated it enough he managed to roll himself right over. I don’t expect to see this again for some months, but obviously he has the muscle power to get it done.
4. I already knew his legs were strong on the inside when he would practice resistance training by pushing constantly (not kicking) with his feet on one side of my ribcage. The result? He can support his entire weight on his legs for a bit. (You may remember it’s a lot of weight).
Anyway we like to brag and will be training him for the strong man competition in no time.
