Today is Connor’s half-birthday. Unbelieveable! Six months has gone by in a flash with so many changes in such a short time:
-he’s in his third set of clothes (0000 lasted for 4 weeks, 000 for 2 months, and the 00 have now lasted 4 months and still seem to be ok). Thanks to the friends who gave us hand-me-down clothes, I’ve only had to buy him about 4 things (plus bibs and singlets). Hand-me-downs are the best!
-he’s got 2 teeth – both bottom teeth, which came through 6 weeks ago, with a minimum of fuss – I didn’t even know they were coming until he chomped down on my finger one day (and I just need to say – owwww! those things are SHARP!)
-he’s grabbing things (like my fingers!) and stuffing them straight into his mouth. Especially his clothes.
-and for the last few weeks, his feet! He was pretty happy when he discovered his feet. And that he could put them in his mouth. Oh to be that flexible…
-In fact, I could probably do away with all his toys and just give him little socks and facecloths to play with.
-he’s lost and regrown the hair off the top of his head
-he’s started eating food! apple, pear, banana, avocado (he didn’t like that much!), blueberries, yoghurt, potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, corn, peas, zucchini and broccoli. I’m having fun cooking things up and pureeing them, even though the sound of the blender thingy makes him cry!
-the vacuum also makes him cry. That’s my excuse anyway!
-he’s rolled over twice from his front to his back (I think the weight of his HUGE head pulled him over) and once from his back to his front (which of course I missed, as I was in the shower!)
-he giggles and laughs at the strangest things, and babbles away to us quite seriously (often when he is supposed to be sleeping – like tonight!)
I converted the pram from the basinette to the seat a week or so ago, and put him in it to adjust the seat straps – he LOVED it! I couldn’t get a non-blurry picture, he was so excited to sit up and look around, he really is quite a social little fella. (Especially when he’s meant to be sleeping … hmmm, I think there’s a pattern there)
Happy half-birthday my lovely little dude.
