Ok so I am a day late writing this post but that doesn't really matter now does it!
I have been thinking back to this time last year, 7 months into pregnancy, big fat belly and swollen ankles. It was around this time where I had my first growth scan, Jack measured average size then, so I really piled it on him in the final 2 months, momma loves the cake!
So Jack, what has he been upto lately? being a lovely little man with a slight cheekiness which can put a smile on your face and a tear in your eye at the end of a bad day. Still no crawling but slight bum shuffling and will crawl backwards and round in circles so I'm sure it wont be long now.
my beautiful boy
He seems to have dropped a nap or at least a portion of the length of one, if we are at home he tends to have one long nap after lunch and will then sleep from 8pm till 7am...and this continued through him getting 4 teeth at the top! he also has his bottom 2 teeth but I think more are on their way as he I showing the signs again.
Still loving the food! we are just starting him onto stage 3 now he has some teeth to chew! (before he only ate pure pureed food, his choice not ours) and can also grab little bits with his thumb and forefinger which I think is very clever!
We have also started blow drying his hair after bathtime and brushing his little toothy pegs! check him out here getting a nice blow dry..
Jack is one hell of a mimic, see all his facial expressions well he must pick these up from people, me probably as I pull some right weird faces most the time! one thing I can't stand at the minute he is grinding his teeth the sound goes right through me! he can say a few words mostly mom, dada, yeah and hiya. He also likes a bit of a dance and a singsong :)
He plays really well you can leave him for ages (well not ages you know what I mean!) and get on with a few bits while he will sit and play happily. He loves going out and has no problem with other people, he loves watching kids though he thinks they are hilarious!
Well until 11 months...hopefully we will see some progress on the crawling front - and we will have been on our first holiday! soooo excited!
