I can’t believe Ollie is over 9 months old and has now been in the world for as long as he was growing in my tummy – utter madness! Ollie is developing at a speed faster than light at the moment and literally changes everyday. He is very much growing from a baby into being a toddler and it’s so lovely to see.
I am a bit late posting this blog post as Ollie actually turns eight months old today which is just crazy! But I feel that so much has happened over the last month that it was worth waiting.
A few days ago we had one of those breakthrough moments that probably only other parents will truly understand just how great it was. After weeks of putting various prepared pieces of food in front of Ollie which he looked at, picked up and then lovingly placed on the floor; we had some actual, full on, rusk to mouth action.
I can’t believe how quickly the last six months have flown by it’s been a blur of sleepless nights, nappies and cuddles but it has also been the most rewarding and wonderful six months of my life. Oliver is growing so fast and is such a little person now, it’s crazy to look back on his newborn pictures where he was so small.
