Nov 29

The last 4 nights he's slept all night without waking up for a bottle. The three nights before that, I let him sleep until he grizzled (rather than giving him a bottle at midnight). We're all sleeping well!
He never bawls like this, so when he started crying just because Zara was crying, I had to take a picture before I gave him a cuddle. He he.

Punkin Punk.

He loves to get hold of a glass, as you can see from the extra huge grin.

What's a boy to do when noone will give him a hamburger!!

(Ben's barbecue birthday party. He had chocolate custard.)

November 22

He's getting quite frustrated. He can push himself up onto his hands and knees, but then his knees slip backwards. So he's working his way away from what he's trying to get to! Ü
According to my scales, he seems to be about 8.2 kilos, which is about average for his age. He was 6 months old on Nov 17.
Big happy grin

How he normally sits, holding his feet.

Byron's soccer ball.

He likes to stand up, holding someone's hands. Usually has a big, excited grin, but we couldn't seem to catch it. Of course, he has to learn to crawl first.

November 5 part 2

On Nov 2, having been enjoying his apple cores, I thought I'd give him something different, and opened up a baby tin of vege mash. He pulled a funny face, but yesterday I gave him some more of it, and he just about hyperventilated if it took too long to get his next spoon. Of course, the mash, which is mostly pumpkin, stained everything yellow! I tried to weigh him (holding him and not holding him when I stood on the scales) and he seems to be about 7.7 kilos.
He's also decided, in the last few days, that he likes rolling onto his stomach after all, so he does it constantly. His little playmat world is getting too small.
The Weight of the World. He thought it was funny.

On top of the World (ie, the exercise ball we sit on at the computer)

Cheeky little monkey

Woke up early one morning, and decided it would be fun to pull in the mesh that hangs around his bed. I got up to see what he was chuckling about.

Loves chomping on an apple core.

Snuggley and cute after waking up from his morning sleep

He likes to "type", but he thought he was pretty clever when he pulled the whole keyboard into his lap.

November 5

These pictures are all from Oct 17, when he turned 5 months old. Beautiful day. We started some farex again, and he was pretty keen. Wrestled the spoon away from me... I had to give him one and get another one for me. He he. Then I “gave” him his Tupperware baby cup, which I bought at Heather's ages ago, and he's been chomping on it since. I put some milk in it, but that was a bit of a mess Ü's currently got a few bits of pasta in it, so it rattles.

Byron and Bluey easily fitting into the birdbath.

He seems to love the feel of grass.

Flaked out in the cot. He likes to sleep on his right side.

Testing out his cup. More milk on his tshirt than in his mouth, of course.

We parked across the road, and three cows came along to say hi. Byron thought they were great!
