A Rare Treat

Right now Noah is taking an afternoon nap - yes we have a nap schedule now - aren't we clever and Rob is out having some much needed male bonding time with mates from work. This means that I have some time to sit and reflect on what's been happening since I sat down and blogged almost 3 weeks ago.

Noah has just been an absolute joy lately - he practically decided by himself (with a little encouragement from 'The Nanna' (my mum)) to start having two 2 hour naps every day plus self settle and sleep through at night. Just goes to show it's no use worrying and trying to force these things - if you just have a bit of patience they get there in the end anyway.

This has changed the landscape of my day dramatically - and I'm thoroughly enjoying the structure and predictability of the routine. Noah and I are also having the pleasure of spending our days with Declan, Reuben, Ivy, Bailey, Summer and Olivia. It's a full house most days but it's so much fun.

This week I've been to the gym 4 times - so hopefully taking control of the weight aspect of my life as well. (That's a whole different blog for another day!!!)

On Monday Noah is going to be 7 months old. Currently he has his 2 bottom teeth and looks so cute. He's not quite crawling yet but is making a damn good go of it. We've been working really hard on helping him to sit and I think it's all going to come together really soon. Still continuing on with swimming and this week Noah splashed his hands on the water for the first time during the welcome song - I was so proud.

He's such a bruiser and it honestly looks like all he does is eat but although he does eat fairly well he's by no means overly excited by food. He's accepting almost everything we give him but I think more often than not he couldn't care less. This week we really stepped it up after mostly sticking to rice cereal and fruit and veggie purees for the last 6 or 7 weeks. Noah didn't bat an eyelid when all of a sudden there were peas in his dinner and sultanas in his brekky - he just chewed through them like an expert. I also made up some dishes with chicken and fish and he ate them no worries as well. So far the foods he's had are potato, pumpkin, parsnip, cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, carrot, peas, spinach, apple, banana, pear, blueberries, pineapple, watermelon, peach, apricot, avocado, tahini, cod, chicken, sultanas, baby rice, weetbix and yoghurt by the truckload.

Life is really good right now so I'm just trying to enjoy it all. I think Noah is going to go through lots of developmental changes in the next month so we're in for quite an exciting time. I'll keep you posted.



Hi thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. It is nice to know someone is listening.
