Our Captain Jack is now 6 months old and this last month has been the most impressive in terms of progression. Jack is quickly turning into a little boy and his baby features are quickly diminishing which leaves me with mixed emotions. It is of course amazing to see him growing away and learning his new life skills but equally sad that our baby is no more.
He is now sitting up well although I do still sit close by as he sometimes gets a bit off balance. He looks so proud of himself when he is sat up and so he should be. Jack is very nosey these days, likes to know what is going on around him all the time. The slightest of noises results in a quick turn of the head and a boy who falls backwards.
Jack’s weaning is now fully established and he is on ‘big boys’ milk. He is eating breakfast, dinner and dessert each day and its clear that he loves his food. With no sign of teeth yet, he shall have to enjoy puree and mashed foods for now.
Jack seems to have found a new high-pitched tone to his voice this month. I’m pretty sure he isn’t a girl but he would make a good one when it comes to screaming. Once he starts squealing, there is no stopping him. We just stand by and chuckle but it’s all good progress I suppose. I find myself constantly saying dad-dad and mum-mum now to see what happens.
Swimming is a definite thumbs up with Jack, he loves all things ‘splashy-splashy time’ so we make a point of taking him as often as possible. Maybe some swimming lessons would be a good idea now?
Jack really does not like tummy time so whilst I try to get him rolling over (which he has done a couple of times unaided) he gets irritable quickly when on his tum so I cannot envisage him crawling anytime soon. Even though he dislikes it, I have managed to get some snaps.
We celebrated Jack’s 6-month (or half year) birthday in style with a Letterbox Cake which we have been asked to review by Bakers Days. Our review will be available soon along with a competition to win a personalised one. Watch this space.
