Four months…how on earth did that happen!?
There have been so many changes since the last update and even though I have been trying to note things down as they happen I am sure there are more I have forgotten.
We are so lucky to have such a happy smiley baby, he still only really cries when there is something wrong and 99% of the time as soon as it is fixed he's back to his ultra cute smiley self.
This month saw the little dude have his second set of vaccinations and his BCG. He was such a trooper and didn't even cry for the BCG.
He's been developing at such a pace it's hard to keep up with…
- if you poke your tongue out at him he'll poke his right back! We had a couple of weeks where that tiny tongue was poking out all the time!
- we have a thumb sucker on our hands, although that doesn't mean he's given up the dummy…he'll happily swap between the two. I'm pretty sure he would have sucked his thumb from birth, he used to get so frustrated in the hospital when he had the splint on and couldn't get to his thumb, but it's surprised me that it took him until now to find it again.
- he's trying so so hard to roll from his back to his tummy and is nearly there, but hasn't quite got the momentum to go all the way yet. There were a couple of front to back rolls during one tummy time session, but he was so shocked by the landing that he hasn't attempted it again!
- he's desperate to sit up and is no longer happy lying for down for anything much longer than five minutes now even on his play mat. We've started using our bumbo for short periods of time and he LOVES it!
Nap times have become a bit more structured he tends to have a couple of shorter naps in the morning and then a longer one in the afternoon. If we've had a particularly busy day he might have a second one in the afternoon. We were making some progress in moving nap times out of his bouncy chair and into the cot, but if I'm honest we've regressed a bit here…must get back onto that. I've also found that when he's over tired and struggling to sleep singing really helps. Our current favourite is 'Lets Go Fly A Kite'
All of the above developments are amazing, but the best thing ever was hearing his first proper precious giggle…the absolute best sound in the world ever. I now spend pretty much ever waking moment trying to make the little dude laugh…nothing better.
We love you more and more everyday little dude x
