WOW – I know once you have a baby time seems to fly by, but this last 5 months have disappeared with a blink of my eyes and I am scared that I am not capturing it enough and don’t want to look back in a year and wish I had done more to help me remember this time.
This month Jacobs growth has taken on off in a massive way and I am not just talking about his size.
He now in 6-9 months clothing but his milestones have been almost weekly!
After a great month on the sleeping front last month with him sleeping through the night, this month he has topped that by sleeping 11 hours at night in his own room in a cot!
Jacob started in the Dreami clever baby sleeper (think posh and stylish moses basket but better) but after I developed a really loud and annoying cough I realised we need to move him to his own space as I was waking him up, much to his annoyance, As ever Jacob has taken it al in his stride, however I am still missing my partner in sleep more than I care to admit.
This month has also seen this little fella tackle rolling in a big way and won! At just over 4 months he developed the ability to roll from back to front and has not looked back since and to top it off he is much preferring to be upright as opposed to being laid on his back during the day as his independent streak is kicking in.
Last on the list of miles stones for this month is one I was hoping to put off till next month but it seems there is just no filling my little man … after a week drinking 8+ 10 ozs bottles of milk he was starting to take a real interest in everything we were eating and often protesting at tea time when everyone had real food and he didn’t … and by protesting I mean crying and screaming with every mouthful we took so we tried him on some baby rice mixed with his own milk and has loved it!
He is much calmer and it also seems to have settled his acute Reflux even further with no sick up at all.
This month really does feel like so many changes have been made and my little baby is now getting so big. I love looking at his little face and wondering what his full personality will be like as I think this little fella will be my joker and cheeky one!
Please slow down time and let me just enjoy this point in time …
