11 Months Old

For the happiest baby in the world little Mr Milo sure has been grumpy this week. This is the reason his update is a week late. I filmed the video update on time but just couldn't get a good photo for his 11 month picture and in the end had to make do with these. The picture below basically sums up his mood this week.. He's under the weather, poor thing, as he was sick today but I'm hoping it's just a bug and he'll be bright eyed and bushy tailed again tomorrow.. 'cause I've got to go to work.

Speaking of work I don't think I ever did an update on that so I'll try to get round to that soon but for those wondering it has been a much easier transition that I'd anticipated and he loved his childminder and the other kids there so anyone in that position right now nervouc bout returning to work.. don't be. 

Development wise it's tough to remember what he did last month, I think he'd just discovered pointing, well that's still a big form of communication but he know also claps and has learned some more dance moves including squatting up and down and 'the twist' which I think Grandma migt have taught him on the sly. He likes to crouch to do everything from eating to playing to pooping.. so that's new and he's now what I'd consider to be a fully fledged walker. He doesn't have many places to walk so for the time being he does laps of our house pausing only to try and sneak up the stairs (often successfully - bad Mummy! - not all the way though.. don't call social services.. please?)

He's been drinking cows milk during the day but he still has his formula morning and night with 2 solid meals in between a morning snack (rusk etc). I know it's cool to give them only cows milk from 1 but I think he'd miss it so I've ordered (Tesco online) some 'Growing Up Milk' to see how he likes it.. I think I'll stick to a formula bottle at bed time at least for the foreseeable future but might switch his morning bottle to regular milk to wean him off the formula slowly as well as cut costs.. babies are expensive! 

So next month my baby will be 1. I think he will be my last so this is doubly sad as the final phase of my baby momma'ing is about to be over, I will miss it but I hear boys stay 'babies' for longer so I'm holding out hope I can still swaddle him when he's 25.

10 Months Old

 I always struggle.. wait, do I start every update like this? lol. I think so but it's true it's hard to recall the little developmental landmarks from the past month when you come to write them down. There are really only a couple that come to mind for Milo's 9th month, He took more than two steps, 5 to be precise and is now walking a lot each day just never very far. He's becoming more interested in games and playing with others, he's always enjoyed interaction but now he seems to be getting in to the to and fro a little more. He started with the childminder as I returned to work this month so he's been in a whole new social environment and so far he's settled in brilliantly. No problems yet. The only other thing that jumps out at me is the dancing.. he dances to everything. I'm not saying he jumps on the floor and busts out some shapes, it's more bouncing, rocking and swinging his arms from side to side but every time he hears music of any kind he starts. It's cute.

As I've previously mentioned these pictures are getting harder to capture since he wont stay still for more than 10 seconds so it's a good job I only have 2 more! I intend to do occasional updates after his first birthday (which by the way we plan to spend at Hooters - but that's a whole other post) rather than monthly's but I will of course continue to blog Milo's progress once he reaches his 12 month.

Milo Dancing To The Hive

If you're unfamiliar with The Hive it's a kids TV show on Disney Junior. Milo doesn't really have a favourite show per se but he definitely has a favourite theme song.. and this is it! He's watching it on my iPhone while I film him with his Dads..

Sneaky Stair Climber

I think I mentioned in a previous update video that he'd started to claimb the stairs but this is the first snippet of film I've been able to capture since he started doing it! And on his 10 months birthday too!

Milo's showing all the classic symptoms and we're expecting teeth any day!

Miss BB

Two weeks later and still no teeth, the sniffles have improved but not gone completely so I'm not sure if it was a cold he picked up from his first week at the childminders or if teeth are still imminent!

Milo's First Lego Experience

Milo 'playing' with Lego his sister got for her birthday. He wasnt left unsupervised and was only allowed to play with it for the duration of this video so don't panic about swallowing small parts, he's fine!
