One small step for Monkey, one giant leap for Mama

One small step for Monkey, one giant leap for Mama

It was just a few weeks ago that we were celebrating our little boy discovering he could move his body across the floor. In terms of progress, he doesn't seem too interested in perfecting his army crawl anymore. For the last week M has only been happy standing on his two feet. Monkey loves nothing more than standing, holding on to the sofa and jabbering away. After a few slips and slides he realised he could move his feet and shuffle along the sofa to grab remotes and Xbox controllers or an unattended…continue reading →
Monkey is 4 & 5 Months old

Monkey is 4 & 5 Months old

You'll notice that the title of this post covers two monthly updates. The reason for this is we kept meaning to write a 4 month update, but time just whizzed by with prep for Christmas. So we've decided to do both updates in one. The picture below was taken just after Monkey turned 5 months old on the 30th December. These two months we've seen the most noticeable differences in Monkey. He's really found his voice and giggles if you work hard enough for it. His personality is growing every day, a favourite…continue reading →
So They All Rolled Over

So They All Rolled Over

Last night whilst we were getting ready for bed I turned to K and asked if Monkey should have rolled over already. K replied with 'All babies do things at different speeds and he'll roll over when the time is right'. I'm not worried about how Monkey is developing but as a new mother I do sometimes wonder what the rough ages are for certain milestones. I must have had a sixth sense. Today Monkey and I went to our Under Ones play group. It was the first session and we both loved…continue reading →

Dribble and Sit-ups

Our little Monkey is 12 weeks old today and we've seen so many changes.   Over the last week we've seen Monkey make, what we assume to be attempts at sitting up on his own. His level of frustration due to his lack of movement is growing everyday. We both assist him when we see him get frustrated, however we know he'll never learn if we keep propping him up. We recently got a big activity play ring to encourage him to sit for longer periods of time. He has never been that…continue reading →

Monkey is 1 Month old

C These last 4 weeks have gone by so fast and already I can see so many changes in our little man. It only seems like yesterday that he was looking up at me with that dazed expression and big swollen eyes. I've really started to see his personality come out. It's funny how he's already learning how to get my attention with his different noises, he knows I will always pick him up. I think that he is more aware of his surroundings everyday and opens his eyes wide when he sees…continue reading →
