General up date

This week has been ups and downs in a quite literal sense.

The first half of the week was mostly concerned with nappies that were rather runnier than they should be, much much runnier. Lasted about three days and we arn't sure if it was a bug or that we changed his formula to the progress one. We changed the formula back and things went back to normal after about a day but three days is also the time that a bug that has shut the local hosital for new admissions takes to run through your system so it might have been either.

He wasn't acting ill other than being a bit more tired than normal so we wern't really worried.

On a more up beat note he climbed the stairs on his own egged on by older male members of the family sitting at the top, though mum was right behind him just in case! He is very good at getting up and down now doing a great sumo crouch and also shuffling along tables etc. He can also walk behind the brick trolley and push it along.

He very distinctly said Ta when give something a few days ago and tries to say again as well as waving his hands and clapping which is his sign for again.

That's all for now as I should be asleep.

Today we are mostly....

practicing waves.

There is the royal wave, the opening and closing my hand wave and the side to side wave.. we have been doing them all, to people, to the TV or just to the air.

i am also rather grumpy as I have a streaming cold which makes my nose run and I keep waking myself up coughing.

We are now able to....

Lower ourself in a controlled manner from standing to sitting though mostly we fall down before we are ready to sit.

We currently have a bit of a cold and have had a couple of sleepy days including a nearly three hour nap at nursery! With the double chin/ potbelly thing I have currently has mum expects me to put on a couple more cm in length soon too.

We love balloons and have worked out there is a packet in the desk drawer so keep try to get them out and yes we understand a deflated balloon becomes a blown up one.

Our first two teeth are now visible easily when we open our mouth though still not fully through.

Our new highchair STILL isn't here apparently it was delivered yesterday while big brother was being picked up from school and the delivery man decided it was a good plan to give it to a random person who lives vaguely across the road !! Of course random person isn't in today

8 month check up

Off to have his 8 month check up in a moment.. will add what they say later.

The Health visitor looked at him and said he seems more like a one year old than 8 months !

He is able to do everything expected of him including demonstrating he can pick up tiny pieces of paper, stand on his feet properly and pull himself up, even proved he could clap for her.

He now weighs 10.15 kg (22lb 5oz) which puts him on the 91st percential for his age and about average for a year old. He is 72 cm long and as he has a bit of a stomach and double chin currently i half expect that to get longer very shortly. That is still above average for his age putting him on the 75th percential but not quite average for 12 months.. however I think he will be well into 1 year clothes by christmas.

He is now not just pulling himself up on furniture but pushing up from his feet and only grabbing on once he gets up. He is also holding on to peoples hands to stand then deliberately letting go I assume to try and practice standing alone.

He crawls well at speed now.

Oh and he did his first drawing at nursery !!
