adorable pictures nic. Dexter loves his jumperoo too. I hear that more and more babies are skipping the crawling stage since people put them on their backs to sleep. You will have to let me know if he does.
As for us- We go for Dex 7mo check up in a few weeks. Im waiting to find out how tall/how much he weighs. He was 4 months last time that was checked.
Im also waiting to celebrate Christmas. Hubby should be back in a few weeks... yay!
Dexter isnt crawling yet either, but he does walk by holding onto two of my fingers (once in each hand). He walks all across the house and bends down to pick things up or sits to exploe. He has ZERO balance... but the boy knows what to do. He is also just learning to grasp better.. won't be long before he starts cruising. Im not sure if he's going to crawl or not. He's been working on it for a month. He gets up on all fours and inches his legs close to his arms... and then falls forward on top of his arms because he hasnt figured out how to move them. Oh wells.
As u can tell miss Melina has been keeping me busy here! Lol jsut had her 4month check up & shots...she did ok little sweetie...momma was a mess though! When did u ladies star t cereals btw? Big debate here between 4 or 6months?! Aaahhh always conflicting info eh
i started Dexter on cereals a week before he turned 4 months. He was sooooooo ready. I dont regret doing it. I would start him on table food early too but with the move coming up, i'm going to wait before making that transition... though im gonna introduce crackers,juice, and a sippy cup before hand.
I say read what the experts say and take their knowledge combined with your intution on when to start Melina (ie when you think she's ready). Of course if you start her and she doesnt take to it, you can always wait a week or two and try again. No big deal.
I did get a hubby update. He will be on an earlier flight. They dont tell families when until just a few days before... so we will see. But i expect him home before Feb
Bex - let me know how the weaning goes when you get to it. Im curious. Im glad that BF has worked out so well for you. I wished it had for me... but i did enjoy the few weeks that i was able to. Thats for sure.
How adorable is that?! So precious. It looks like it was freezing there though... BRRR. How could he sleep with all of that going on!
Thanks for sharing.
BTW does Elliot love his floor gym? Dexter has been playing with it since i brought him home from the hospital. Though now he just stands up and cleans on the bars and make the whole thing tumble down LOL Oh and he keeps trying to pick up the animals off the mat. He hasnt learned yet that they are just pictures. lol
I had a fabulous outing with dex today. We went to the park. I bought him shoes earlier this week and i let him loose. The boy almost did a dead run. He put his hand through the sand ... walked to the swings to seperate times to swing... he found leaves and squished them in his hands. We probably spent close to 45 minutes at the park and i would have to say he probably walked a block total by time he went from one place to the next. oh he absolutely loved it. we will have to do it again on another nice day!
Wow. Is he walking Hands on his own?! That's amazing if he is.
Lisette - Finlay was an early weaner. Because of the colic blw would have been no good for him. We needed him to get onto proper meals pretty quick. Nearly all of our NCT friends are doing full blw or blw with one purée meal a day. Finlay gets some finger food but I tried blw but he just looked at me as if I was nuts. He will feed himself toast, bread, fruit and snacks, but no meals. He is now eating almost everything but has a savoury tooth. A little girl gave him some vanilla sponge cake, before I could stop him be put it in his mouth, pulled a disgusted look and spat it out!
Finlay is doing a little bit of cruising but he needs placing in position. He hasn't worked out how to get up yet. He reaches up but doesn't lift himself. When he's laying down he can't sit up either. He lifts his head and feet up together.
Gorgeous photos Bex. We started to have snow on Friday, but it got super heavy here today. Finlay had his first sledge ride today! We didn't get to make a snowman today though. He fell asleep in the baby Bjorn! It's only just stopped snowing, so oh might get a snow day tomorrow. If that happens we will make one at lunch tomorrow instead.
Hands Amazing news about hubby. He will be here in less than 2 weeks. Have you got a welcome home surprise for him? Xxx
