This time 6 months ago I was in labour looking forward to meeting my baby. I can not believe how fast the time has gone - yet at the same time I can't remember my life without him.
William is now over 6 kilos in weight. He has started solids (loves apple and rice cereal, not a fan of pumpkin) and manages to make a lot of mess. He follows each mouthful of food with his fist and I'm never quite sure how much ends up in his mouth.
He is sitting really well and learning to move from sitting to tummy (well learning to control the movement, he can throw himself down at the moment). Creeping on his tummy is slowly turning into crawling on all fours and he like to get up on his toes and hands and balance as well. We have the baby gate up to keep him and the dog apart.
He had his first swing at the playground a little while ago and thought it was great fun.
We are fortunate that in the last week or two he has learnt to self settle and goes down for sleeps happily and sleeps for an hour or two. Heaven after taking 30-40 mins to settle for a quick 30 minute catnap. He still wakes for a feed (or three) overnight but I secretly enjoy the cuddles.
Being a mum has been the best experience I have ever had and I can't wait to see him grow up.
