Okies. I said this post would be on it’s way. Well, it’s here – da da daaa!!!! Welcome to a quick flashback of the last 6 months of my life. Warning – mad labour woman and boob feeding pictures coming up.
I go into labour in the wee early morning hours on December 21st 2011. Little Baby Bear was born at 11:27pm by emergency caesarean. If you are lucky I’ll treat you to his crazy-time birth story later.
My first breastfeed whilst still in recovery. I absolutely love breastfeeding, this really was a magical moment for me.
K and J have their first cuddles. 1 day old.
T comes home. 3 days old – 24th December, Christmas Eve.
T’s first Christmas. 4 days old.
First Smiles. 4 weeks old.
First time grasping a toy, even though we think it was a complete fluke. It still counts. 6 weeks.
Sitting with support, what a clever little muffin. 8 weeks.
First swim. Do you count this first one as the one that they actually enjoy, or just the first time they get wet? I am going with the first time he gets wet. Did not like. 9 weeks.
He starts cooing. 2 and a half months.
He starts lifting his head up in tummy time and not crying about it. 10 weeks.
Starts consistently sleeping through the night. 10 weeks. Don’t be a hater, this all went to shit sometime between 4 and 6 months for many reasons, and is only now finally getting back on track.
Begins to transition out of his swaddle. 14 weeks.
Actually enjoying a swim 🙂 15 weeks.
T starts rolling over. He was pretty slow to start off and it took a few more weeks to be able to roll the other way but now he is a rolling machine. 4 months old.
Really begins to laugh in earnest. 4 and a half months.
First jump in a Jolly Jumper. These things are awesome. 4 and a half months.
Sleeps on tummy happily without waking up all freaked out, after rolling in his sleep and not being able to get back. 5 and a half months.
T becomes acquainted with his new walker. 5 and a half months.
And last, but certainly not least, T begins solid food (and solid poo-d). 5 months, 3 weeks.
And that pretty much gets us up to date. Thank you for sticking with me. Coming to a Magical Milestone soon will be sitting unaided but we are not quite there yet. I’d love to hear of any important milestones anyone thinks I may have missed. I am sure that are some that I’ve missed out.
