Little Mr’s firsts… new games


little mr's firstsOver the last couple of weeks, Little Mr seems to have grown at an alarming rate. Every day he’s looking taller, his hair is getting thicker and he’s looking less like a baby (sob sob!) He’s also amazing me with every little new thing he does. He knows his own name and will turn his head in the direction of the person calling him. He’s getting to grips with turning his head to find Mummy and Daddy and he’s getting really good at reaching out for his toys, grabbing them and rattling them around. He’s found his feet and loves to play with them in the bath / in the car / when he’s feeding / whenever!

One of Little Mr’s new talents is to play games with his dummy. He’s got a brilliant knack of taking it out and putting it back in. He loses this talent when he’s sleepy or over tired specifically when he’s in the car travelling some distance on the motorway. He’s been taking his dummy out and dropping it the other side of his car seat so we lose it down the side of the car. When you’re on the motorway and you found out he’s lost his dummy then whines for it back it gets a tad annoying. I can’t be mad though, his cheeky little grin makes my heart melt but I’m sure he knows what he’s doing.

Another new little talent Little Mr is perfecting is the game of Roly Poly. He’s learnt how to roll over (from his back to his front) but one of his arms gets wedged and he starts to panic, he eventually manages it but he’s not a fan of being on his tummy. He can roll himself back over during the day but at night when he’s zipped up in his sleeping back, it’s a bit of a problem. Cue a ‘crying upset baby’ wake up call at 3:30am and again at 7am. He’s good at lifting his head up now as he’s quite strong so I’m not worried about him being on his front but he gets so upset, I think he’s definitely going to be a side sleeper like I am now post section.

It’s all the fun of growing up as he discovers what he’s capable of and I’m as proud as punch to watch him grow and smile.

    Each moment and milestone is so special. I remember my childrens’ frustration while getting to grips with rolling both ways – it does get easier when they work out how to move their arm!
    The next few milestones are even more exciting when they start to move, although it will also be time to start to move things higher as he gets mobile and can reach what he is not supposed to have, although the mischievous smiles you receive are all worth it.
    I love reading your blog and following Little Mr’s adventures, please keep it up as I for one love it!
