I keep having to remind myself that there are so many ‘firsts’ going on for Baby R. What we take for granted can be utterly amazing for this little human thats only graced this earth for 9 months. We follow The Wonder Weeks app which helps determine when he’s going through a developmental leap and so many more firsts are going on, during these leaps the world gets a little bit more exciting which can result in some grumpy moments as he fusses at the overload of information that crowds his growing brain. These fussy periods are tough on us all as my cheeky, chirpy, chappy turns into a whinge monster that we all want to avoid, but as the saying goes, our children need us more when we want to be with them the least!
I love to watch him as he works out how things need to be, how to respond to people and how to reach his goal (usually involving the dog bowl / stairs / wires / food. He has so much determination in his character along with a willingness to cause mischief and while he’s just starting the process of learning cause and effect, I can see the whole new world opening up before him.
Unfortunately this means that there is no longer time to keep still for nappy changes or getting dressed!
