June 2010

In spite of his healthy weight, he has taken to baby porridge as though we've been starving him. He was having a few teaspoons at the start of the month, and probably 4 or 5 tablespoons by the end. He's gripping things better and putting them in his mouth. He's practising sounds (the growling was funny). He says umumum, and has a high-pitched squeal when he sees something exciting. Big brother, Byron, says, "Aren't you a cute little vegemite boy... aren't you, aren't you?", probably after hearing me call him a "happy little vegemite" once. He's a very laid back baby, and really only cries when he's hungry or tired. He occasionally sleeps from 7 to 7, but mostly wakes up once for a drink. He's sleeping in the portacot (Jasmine's still in the cot) and he's realized the hard mesh on the side makes a fun scratchy noise... we hear him in the middle of the night :D
