We have had lots of fun this week, seeing lots of people.
Here I am at cousin Luca’s house sharing his toys.
I even went in his walker but my little feet don’t reach the ground yet so I just had a chew on the toys.
Me and Mummy went to Mini Mayhem with Auntie Charlotte and Luca. I decided now was a good time to learn how to sit up! I’m still wobbly but learning how to hold my weight up better each day.
I went to meet Auntie Jen and Alan for the first time. I was very sleepy so I’m not too impressed in this one.
I was starting to get bored in the carrycot pram as I couldn’t see very well so Mummy and Daddy switched me to the seat and I love it. I have a cosy toes which keeps me nice and warm.
Here I am with Auntie Channy.
Most mornings I wake up between 7-8 for my bottle and I have started going into my cot regularly for my morning naps.
I’m still on 8oz bottles and going to bed around 9-9:30pm (which is quite late)
This week has been very busy as Daddy is still off of work. We went into town to buy some new things for the house and some clothes for me. This is our family selfie in T K Maxx.
I went with mummy and daddy to visit Great Aunty Wendy and cousin Alex gave me these baby Raybans. They will be perfect for when we go to Portugal in March.
I am getting so strong on my front now and will happily stay like this for a while before I get tired.
On New Year’s Eve we went to a restaurant with Nanny Polly and GG, Auntie Chantelle and Uncle Nathan. It was very noisy but I was a good boy and went to sleep because I was so tired from looking all around at the balloons and lights.
Nanny Polly and GG brought me this cosy dressing gown for Christmas. It’s lovely and fluffy.
This is my smart outfit that Aunty Chantelle and Uncle Nathan got me for Christmas.
We had a lovely sleep over at Chantelle and Nathans and I woke up in a really chatty mood even though we had a late night.
I’ve decided that 8ozs isn’t quite enough now so I am having 9oz bottles. I don’t always finish them but it won’t be long before I get to try some foods because milk won’t fill me up enough.
I have been practicing rolling onto my back from being on my side with Nanny Polly and Mummy.
I have started to play with some of the toys that I was given for Christmas, I love my talking teddy bear and crab rattles.
I am still going through my current leap so there are lots of changes in my behaviour whilst I am learning new skills.
Here I am with daddy watching lullabies on the iPad.
I have started going into my cot for my day time naps to get me used to waking up in my own room, mummy has set the monitor up so she can get on with housework whilst I am asleep.
On Monday I went with mummy to see her friend Katie and I met her little boy Noah.
Getting in some tummy time. I’m getting stronger and can lift my head higher now.
On Saturday I went to town with Daddy, and Uncles Nathan and Piete whilst mummy Nanny Polly and Charlotte when with Channy to find her wedding dress!
This are my presents for Christmas Day all wrapped up under the tree.
It’s also cousin Luca’s first Christmas and he has a matching Santa Sack full of presents from Father Christmas.
Having a chat with my talking teddy.
Here I am opening my first ever present.
I got lots of lovely things…
We spent Xmas day at Nanny Polly and Granddad G’s house. There was lots going on but I was very well behaved.
My sleeping pattern has been disruppted so I am waking up at around 04:30 for a chat and then going back to sleep.
I have learned how to hold toys and put them to my mouth.
This week baby Jenson Jay Brian Forrest arrived! He is absolutely adorable – congratulations to his mummy Sarah, daddy Luis and big brother Bailey.
In the mornings now after my first bottle I am having around an hours nap, which gives mummy time to run around the house getting ready.
We went with Auntie LaLa, cousin Luca and Nanny Polly to see Great Nanny Doreen.
Everyone says I have a very serious face but I really enjoy smiling as well
I am still loving the swing chair that mummy’s best friend Sara lent to me.
Mummy went to work for a few hours this week so Nanny Polly looked after me. Here I am having a nap with Reggie.
Merry Christmas ?- my Christmas cards have arrived and mummy can’t wait to send them out to everyone!
Modelling my new winter hat
On Friday mummy and I went to see her friend Nikki and baby Arthur in Reigate.
Arthur’s birthday is the same day as mine and we were both born exactly a week after our due dates.
Here we are at a garden centre where they have real reindeer.
This week we also went to a play day at the family centre where mummy learned what a treasure box is and that there are lots of things around the house that I am interested in looking at and feeling. We borrowed a sensory pack to play with.
This week I went for a sleepover at Nanny Polly and Grandad Gavin’s house whilst mummy and daddy went to a Halloween party. I was very well behaved and we went in the car to see Great Nanny Thelma.
Mummy thinks I look more scared than scary in this picture with Grandad G.
This is how I look at 2am after being changed because I was sick…
Enjoying tummy time, I am getting better at holding my head up but mostly I just put my hands in my mouth when I am on my tummy.
I am always very smiley in the mornings.
Me and Mummy at Nanny and Grandads house.
Went for a trip to town. Mummy likes to buy me new clothes. I probably have too many but she says I’m worth it.
I went to the sensory room with Auntie Charlotte, Luca and Nanny Polly for the first time. I stayed awake the whole time and loved looking at all of the lights.
Luca is getting used to having me around and likes to hold my hand.
I get worried when my bottle isn’t finished and someone tries to wind me because I don’t know that I will get the bottle back when I have burped.
My cousin Luca has given me his frog chair as he is too big for it now. I fit into it perfectly and really like that I am sat upright and can look all around me.
On Thursday me, Mummy, Auntie Charlotte and Luca went to visit Great Nanny Thelma in Croydon. I then got to see where Grandad Gavin works for the first time. That’s his big truck in the back ground.
I am now drinking 7 oz bottles and I am sleeping for about 6 1/2 hours solid at night which makes mummy and daddy very happy.
I don’t like being cuddled for long after I have had a bottle, I like to lay on my changing mat so I can look around and kick my legs and I am learning to fall asleep for my naps during the day on my own which makes mummy very proud.
This week we went and saw Great Nanny Doreen. She says I grow when I’m asleep which makes sense because I am 12lb 3ozs now but I am following a nice curve on my development chart. Continue reading Week 7
