Bambeanie at six months

Monday, 11 November 2013

Half a year. Just over in fact. So hard to believe that my tiny bambeanie is half way to one year old!

He is the most delightful little man. Always happy. Well, most of the time ;) 

In the last month he's well and truly mastered rolling over. He was a bit slow on the uptake with that one, but now there's no stopping him. 

He sits up really steadily now too and very pleased about it he is too. So much so that woe betide anyone that lies him on his back if he wants to be sat upright like everyone else!

Solids are going well - he loves his food. He's tried lots of different fruits and vegetables - sweet potatoes and butternut squash are his favourites. He had a roast chicken dinner along with the rest of the family yesterday, which went down very well indeed.

He's eating two meals a day, with three breastfeeds in between. This isn't counting the night-time comfort feeds, of which there are more than I would like (!) He seems to wake once or twice (occasionally more) and I guess this is because of his teeth. There doesn't seem to be anything else bothering him.... he goes back to sleep pretty easily, so its not too bad.

In the last couple of days he's really found his voice and now talks to us all the time. It's the cutest thing and officially my favourite sound ever! He babbles away at the kitchen table, in his cot, when you're changing his nappy. All the time! Much to the delight of his older brother and sister, who think it's hilarious.

He's so strong on his legs (and has been from a very young age), so I wouldn't be surprised if he was pretty young to walk. His sister was only 10 months. He certainly isn't showing any interest in getting up onto his knees to crawl yet.

His favourite toy at the moment is definitely Sophie. Those spindly giraffe legs are getting a good old chewing, that's for sure. 

On that note, no sign of any teeth yet. Some days I'm amazed at the amount of dribble he produces, so they can't be that far off. Apart from waking at night, he doesn't seem overly bothered by his teeth yet. Fingers crossed it stays that way. He's been wearing his amber necklace, so maybe that's having an effect too...

I love all stages of babyhood - each one is wonderful for different reasons. But, at the moment, I feel like Ayden is doing something new every day. New noises, facial expressions, different things make him laugh (he has the best chuckle ever!). I can't wait to see what he does tomorrow :)


  1. What a beautiful post! I really hope my little man (due in Feb) is as adorable as yours is :-)

  2. Hi - and thank you :)

    Hope you're feeling well...? Will this be your first baby? x
