The one with (An update on Oliver)
So back to the star of the show... Oliver is coming along in leaps and bounds at the moment! Now that I think about it, this makes sense - he turned 8 months on Monday so his corrected age is about 6 and a half months - I'm told that 6 months (ish) is quite a big month in development. He is now the proud owner of three teeth, can sit unaided for about a minute (if he's in the mood) and is desperately trying to crawl (and managing a sort of belly flop - bum in the air, ends up flat on his face haha!)
Weaning is continuing at a furious pace and we are now having three meals a day. He seems pretty happy to just eat mashed up, baby friendly versions of whatever we're having most of the time and also loves finger foods!
A new 'batch' of babies has just joined our baby group, one of whom was 5 weeks premature - it really hit me then how my baby isn't really a baby anymore! He looks so big and grown up and has learned so much... I can't wait to see what's next!
