Where to begin this month?
There are so many firsts for my little boy… We will start with what he is eating… Well he is no longer exclusively breast fed… He has had his first solid foods, and I have to say not rushing and waiting has paid off, he is eating quite well, his first food was mashed banana and after the initial faces of disgust it went quite well, but when he is full he will not eat any more… Just like his mommy!
He is sitting up very well on his own and has even sat up from a crawling position a couple of times, looking shocked that he has actually done it! He is still not crawling but he is up on all fours and rocking, he wants to go desperately, but he is great at rolling anywhere he wants to get to!
His sleeping patterns have completely changed, he no longer sleeps for long periods of time, he wakes throughout the night and I am sure he wants his place in our bed next to Florrie! Some nights he barely sleeps for an hour at a time… I’m exhausted, and I think he is too really!
His use of his hands has improved so much, his co-ordination is so good now, he has control over grabbing anything that catches his eye! He is still the happiest smiliest baby I know… His little face melts my heart each time a gorgeous smile spreads over his face…
This little boy is pure joy in my heart every single day… The love that just keeps growing is amazing… He may be number 8 in our large family, but each child brings their own special magic each and every day in their own little way!
