What the heck.. Month 9!
Easter!! What a lovely First Easter with my little Family. We celebrated with Lunch at Nan’s! Easter is not a huge deal in our Family but I wanted to keep it going for Ash! I ordered him an outfit. He had an Easter bib, ears and even a cute little Easter bag. He enjoyed his first try of A white chocolate Fredo Frog from Auntie Bobby. He enjoyed it a little to much that he wasn’t very happy when mumma took it away from him!! As usual Baby Ash was A very spoilt little boy and had a very happy Easter weekend.
Ash is crawling around the whole house now and doesn’t he love checking everything out! A few of his favorites include:
• Watching the dryer
• Slapping his hands on the tiles
• Looking at himself in the refection of the fridge, squealing and dancing at himself
• Watching the music channel
• Making music
It is just crazy how fast my little babe is growing up. He is wanting to eat everything now! At nine months we have started to give him finger foods so he can also feed himself. He LOVES doing it! It freaks me out a little but I have to let him go he enjoys it so much. I think it helps alot with teething, him being able to rub the foods up along his top gum! Ash has finally cut a top tooth! His top right tooth popped though only a few days ago!
I don’t know if it was due to teething or not and because our little man has asthma it makes it alot worse, he got sick! Just a very runny nose and a bad cough but he had to have some medicine for 5 days to stop the mucous bill up and he also had to have antibiotics. Ontop in that he has a floppy larynx so he does sound like he is really struggling when he gets abit of a build up like that. He was cleared up within no time though, Thank gosh. It’s awful seeing your babe sick!
Since getting into an amazing right sleep routine Ash started holding his own bottle. Declan put Ash to bed one night, gave him his bottle and left the room. We watched in the monitor Ash drinking his bottle all hy himself and then he rolled over and put him self to sleep! Ahhhh, it just gets better.
I couldn’t believe it, my baby that we have rocked to sleep for 10 months just self soothed and fell to sleep own his own!!! Unbelievable. (Not every single night, but it’s still so worth bragging about!)
Well as I post this Ash is 10 months old today! I can not believe he will be one in only a few short months. It is funny hey, you feel like this little person has been in your life FOREVER and then when you think about the time you have had with them you can’t comprehend that is has nearly been a year! Weird I know, but you wouldn’t have it any other way! Would you? Haha…
