Jezika great to hear from you! Sorry about the house issues. I'd definitely say don't buy a house out of desperation, remember you're planning on living there for some years (I assume!) so you need to be happy with it! Buying a house is a huge decision so better to rent for a few more months or maybe even 1-2 years and then get the house right for you than to buy one that you'll regret for years Wow, teething, is Alexander the only one not doing that either I hope she soon feels less fussy now that they're almost out. As for development and tummy time that's all true! I try to do that as well but yeah, it can be hard. But I know in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter if Alexander starts crawling tomorrow (fat chance) or if he first does it when he's 10-11 months. My HV told me today that the 2 other babies are (very) early with crawling and the more "norm" is 8-10 months. I tried the tummy time on me thing but he got fussy still after a few minutes so that doesn't work My HV tried showing me a few other ways like putting his upper body on a pillow or having him over my legs but those methods didn't get him to do it for much longer She said to just get as much in as I can and we'll see. I'll have to look into one of those and see if DH is willing to cough up the money to get one. Great pics AFM my HV came by today and Alexander weighs 8.8 kg He's been cleared to start eating meat/fish which she wants us to either blend up or if it's something soft e.g. salmon to mash it up and offer it to him that way. She also wants us to phase out his nighttime gruel and have me start giving him oatmeal for breakfast, then porridge for lunch and then the veggie mash evt. with meat for dinner. As for sleeping she says I can try not rocking him at all when I put him down and see what happens or just rock him until he stops being fussy and see what happens. She says if he doesn't fall asleep himself to wait and try again another time. I'll have to try it soon as he's growing out of his cradle and we can't rock him in his crib!
