So whats been happening?
It was Easter which we never go over board with - a few tasty chocolate treats no piles of Easter eggs here.
Instead we focus on enjoying the time together with the older three off school.
We have spent time in the garden, which is a tiny tiny space but we are trying to make it as functional as possible and I will do a post on our garden projects as soon as I get around to it. and of course been out and about as the weather warms up!
Noah is now approaching 20 weeks old. He is becoming more of a character each day, he wants to be involved and the center of things, although still growing he does seem to have slowed down a little, he has instead focused on finding new tricks to entertain us, he giggles and chuckles away loudly when his big brother tickles his toes or his big sister blows raspeberries on his tummy, he can roll over confidentally and grasps at everything in his reach!
He is a real time hugger and demands a lot more attention than in the first couple of months, sleeping much less in the day and instead wanting to play. (Doesn't like me at my computer - he has a love for my mouse and its optical light and grabs at it when ever I'm using the computer)
Breastfeeding is still going great, although there is no real sleep routine, he feeds on demand although much less through the day now, he co sleeps in with me at night about 50% of the time, and the other 50% he sleeps in his carry cot at the foot of my bed. I really am not worried tho as I know this time only last for a blink and even when I'm tired the sleepy snuggles are still some of my favorite times of the day.
We brought a highchair (one of the only items we have brought new!) Although we are not actively weaning just yet.
He is however really interested in our food now, and grabs at our food and watches us intently when we're eating.
Noah rolls over on the floor so gets frustrated on his playmat after a while, rolling over and getting annoyed he tries to sit himself up on his bouncer chair and almost topples out of it,
So recently brought a play nest from a secondhand facebook selling site, I love these they really are fantastic and Mikey loved his all them years ago. It is a good safe place where he can practice sitting and can grab and reach his toys a bit easier.
Clothing still pretty much is babygrows, (with the odd dungaree outfit creeping in) he fits comfortable in 6-9 months and some 9-12 months! He is still in size 4 nappies and we finally got round to weighing him at a drop in session, he was 18lb 5oz at 17 weeks.
