This wee guy is 10 months old today. He’s just so incredible to be around. He loves food, tickles, dancing with me, bouncing. Today he loved touching my nose and smiled when I got him to touch his own. He’s soooo inquisitive. If he picks something up, he looks at it then turns it over to look at the back, as if he’s pondering how it works. He doesn’t like when we take something from him that he shouldn’t have (he’s especially fond of cables at the moment!) but he gets over it pretty quickly. He doesn’t like lying on his back to get his nappy changed.When he’s on the move, he’s like a little tiny ninja baby - you see him in one place then blink and he’s on the other side of the room and you haven’t seen him move! He’s still crawling backwards. He pivots and spins but can get anywhere he wants. He almost crawled forward today but not quite. Maybe tomorrow. Or whenever. It’s fine.
He’s so happy, it makes my heart swell. He always has a smile at the ready, even for strangers. People still stop us every day to talk to him and tell him how gorgeous he is. Wee ladies’ man hehe.
This is the reason I’m not on Tumblr much anymore 😍—
Does this count?!—
So yesterday was supposedly a big milestone for me. I turned 40. Before it, I really wasn’t bothered. Now? Nope, really not bothered. We had a wee family lie-in then dinner with the family and my best friend and her babies. Didn’t take many photos cos dining with a 2 year old, a 9 month old and an 11 week old requires all hands on deck! But to summarise…. My juice tasted weird, the food was gorgeous, Ruairidh stuffed his face and ate summer fruits so looked like Robert Smith from The Cure, lots of chat, cards, presents and cake, a floor covered in food, children covered in food, so many messages and FB messages from folk. I feel very very blessed.
