Annalyn has been trying to jump this week. I don’t even know what’s “normal” for gross motor skill milestones anymore, but I’m finding this even more exciting than when she started walking backwards a couple weeks ago.
And cuter, too – because when I asked her to try to jump, she concentrated so hard, even holding her mouth crooked. You know that helps, right? Holding your mouth right?
I don’t know where that phrase comes from. In my mind, I can hear my mom and my granny saying it. Is it a southern saying? Or just something my family said?
What about you? Do you have to hold your mouth just right when you’re doing something difficult or new?
