My baby is almost 7 months now and he eats SOOOO MUUUUCH FOOOOD.
I seriously feel like I’m preparing food every single minute of the day.
Food for the baby. Food for the kids. Food for my husband and myself. Then oh look I need more food for the baby.
And when I’m not actually MAKING FOOD, I’m thinking about what food to make for the next meal. What’s for dinner tonight? What about tomorrow’s lunch? Leftovers? And morning tea? Do I have enough food for tomorrow? Baby will be hungry soon. If I make lunch for the kids NOW, they won’t nag me while I’m feeding the baby. But what am I going to eat? Because the baby wants food NOW!
This cooking thing? I’m so over it.
So the consequence of my baby eating so much food, is that he makes SOOOO MUUUUCH POOOOOO.
I am a 24/7 arse wiper. Always armed and ready with a wet wipe.
But moving right along…
Liam is at the pre-crawling stage.
He gets up on his hands and knees, wriggles back and forth, stretches and arches, squirms, rolls and plops… and after a few minutes, he’s moved to the OTHER SIDE OF THE MAT!
It’s not graceful, and it’s not fast, but he does manage to get what he wants.
He sleeps 11-12 hours through the night. 2-3 hours in the morning. And takes a little nap around 4pm.
His personality so far is still easy-going and placid. In the mornings he’s very dopey and blur. But after his morning nap, he’s bright as a button, hungry, noisy and very active.
He’s my very happy chappy (doing a whole lot of poo).
