With his wide smile and bright eyes, I get asked this about Tommy everywhere I go.
The answer is, yes! He is always really happy. So nice to have a cruisy little guy in the house. After a bit of a rocky start, he has made up for it by being so easy going now.
He turned 6 months this week...that means food. The novelty of feeding solids to a baby definitely wears off with each child! We've fed him a few times, much to his disgust. He still prefers me, oh joy!
Tommy had been sleeping in our bedroom since he was born. It isn't a very good location as it is right off the lounge room so always pretty noisy. Night times were okay until about 1 month ago and he started waking up at 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am...you get the picture. Not much fun and impossible to leave him to settle himself back to sleep when he was right next to me. Our only option was putting him into the sewing room to sleep. I was reluctant to do this because night time is when I get the majority of my sewing work done...but after weighing up sleep or sewing...sleep won! We will be moving in a couple of months so he will have his own room then anyway. I was expecting the first few nights to be really difficult, but he slept for 11 hours! And has done the same ever since.
Oh, and he has TWO teeth! Tommy is always pretty drooly, and people would always say, "he'll be getting teeth soon" to which I would tell them that my children don't get teeth until they are almost 12 months (that is what O & L did anyway) then last week two little teeth sprouted through his bottom gums! So cute, but not so when he bites me...
I really can't believe he has already been here for 6 months. Before we know it he will start sitting, crawling, walking, talking. Tommy - you are a joy!
