After this monthly update, I’ll only be posting two more of these. Time is going fast, I looked at Buddy this morning and thought wow, ten months old already. ten months of loving you.
In this month alone, Buddy has changed so much. I can’t quite believe it!
is ten months old
Not consistently but he’s plodding around doing a few steps at a time and funnily enough, this morning he stood up un-aided and zoomed across the rug to go stroke Belle. He was that fast, I didn’t have time to react, to record it for Kayne or anything! I shared a video on Twitter not long ago of his first steps and every day, he’s slowly getting the hang of it and doing it more. I think he’s just a bit scared to let go incase he falls or hurts himself but he’s a tough cookie! Buddy has been cruising the furniture for so long that this is really exciting! He’s a determined little bear, that’s for sure.
What else has Buddy been getting up to in his ten months old update?
I think, for the first time, the sleep regressions/leaps have actually fallen into place for Buddy. Normally, they’re about 234523 weeks out of sync. So, we’re getting that lovely sleep regression where for 1.5+ hours a night, I’m trying to settle him in his room. The only thing that stops him crying is a bottle but then he won’t go straight to sleep after. He will just lay there but the second I leave the room, all hell breaks loose. Someone please tell me this doesn’t last forever? He has always been an amazing sleeper since being a new born so we really struggle when he’s like this.
I do not deal well with broken sleep. It makes me the crankiest bitch going. So this is really testing me and keeping me on my toes. I just hope he snaps out of it soon *wish me luck*.
Buddy likes to say ‘iya’
Clapping, is also Buddy’s new fave thing. He just randomly started doing it one afternoon and now just does it all the time. He’s learning and doing so many new things now that my little moan about his last update not having much to say seems irrelevant ha!
I’ve learnt something very valuable recently as a mother.
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know about this and will have laughed already at my expense… But if not. Never, I mean never, trump in the room that your child is sleeping in. You never know if it will be quiet or loud and I found out the hard way when my own trump betrayed me and woke him up. Oops!
I know Christmas is sooo last year (ha) but we had the loveliest first Christmas as a three <3 I was in hospital in the run up to Christmas and we didn’t know if I’d be able to see Buddy visit Santa for the first time but thankfully, I came home under strict resting instructions. He visited Santa at work so I knew how it went and knew that I’d be sat down for most of it so it worked out well. Everyone told me that Buddy would not pay attention to anything on Christmas Day and to be honest, I thought the same. How wrong were we?! He took in everything, was getting really involved with the present opening, smiling and laughing the whole time. I couldn’t have asked for more.
