This little guy has been out for longer than he’s been in! He’s so fun right now – though I feel like I say this every month ;). He’s exploring everything, starting to respond to and understand some words, crawling behind either me or Guy everywhere we go and having so much fun trying to feed himself.
Feeding: He’s starting to feed himself more and more although he gets a bit weird about new textures like anything grated (even his beloved cheese). Generally he eats all finger foods for breakfast, a mixture at lunchtime and is spoon fed at dinner. We’re down to four breastfeeds a day and one overnight. Sleeping: Good! He’s finding it hard to wind down for his naps so I sometimes have to go in and pat him for a couple of minutes but he’s resettling himself no problem and his nights have been pretty consistent. Teething has thrown us a bit of a curve ball but he’s been dealing with it really well. Milestones: He’s currently got five teeth with three more coming through, he’s walking between furniture and slowly starting to cruise along the couch, and he’s just started to put his knee up and climb onto low shelves. Things he loves: dogs! He is obsessed with dogs. Also plants, birds, pulling things out of cupboards and drawers, his abacus and his pegboard. Things he hates: getting his nappy changed (still!), getting his face wiped, getting dressed, being in the car.
