My baby boy is fast growing up. It feels even more so because most of the things he’s doing now, are before the age at which J did them so it’s all a bit quick for me compared to last time! He just wants to be like his big brother really, but his antics are going to be the death of me one day – I’ve lost count of how many times already my heart has nearly jumped out of my mouth!
Since his last update he still hasn’t been weighed, I think I’ll go and get him weighed before his next update as I’m just intrigued to see how he’s doing. I can tell he’s leveling out though as the sleeves on some of his tops are a bit looser than they were with his mega chunky arms as I can actually roll them up now! He’s still on one bottle of milk a day though, and I’m not sure when we will try to introduce a beaker at bed time instead, though he does drink from a beaker during the day time (we gave him one much earlier than we did with J as he kept stealing his – he still does in fact, and vice versa!).
I mentioned last time that he had started walking. His confidence has built up really quickly and now he walks practically everywhere (though he’s still a bit wary of grass!). He loves to walk down the path to the car and he’s so proud of himself when he does. Since his new found freedom he is into everything – inside boxes, standing on boxes to reach things or get onto things, and he’s finally mastered climbing the sofa – oh joy! He loves climbing as you can see in my last Project 365 update, and because of this he’s acquired too many bruises and scratches to count in the last few weeks!
He’s finally acquired a new tooth so now he has eight gnashers, though the latest one took absolutely ages to come through, poor little guy. He’s now started the biting phase (as well as a smacking one!) and it flaming hurts, damn those sharp teeth. He has started giving such adorable kisses though, also using his teeth.. He opens his mouth wide and leans in for one and then gently nips your puckered lips – I really need to get a video!
