Catching Up and AB Calender

Tao tried to roll over a few days ago! He didn't manage in the end but it was extremely exciting to watch ;) He was trying to push off the bed with one leg and using the other to try to kick over and get some momentum. Maybe the next time he tries he'll flick his shoulders in the same direction thus acheiving success :)

Maybe he might learn to use his head as well (literally...he has a big head).

I may be suicidal but I have taken on another project which I think is very worthwhile. I am making an Alternative Baby calender (quite sadly dubbed the ABC project, I'm so clever). It'll be something else I keep track of in this journal.

Almost forgot

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

I put Tiny on the floor today while Josh was at uni, down on his tummy coz he was being active and I thought he might like to attempt crawling again (it always frustrates him and he makes lots of noise, I'll flip him back over as or a bit before he starts crying). As soon as I put him down he lifted his head all the way up.

I was too shocked to grab the camera, and by the time I thought about it he didn't seem inclined to want to do it again.

The thing that spun me out was that both arms were by his sides, he lifted his head all the way up and his legs came up as well to counterbalance, looking kinda like a balancing banana. It was cute and funny and I wish I got a photo!

And it's bedtime for me.

The Amazing Sleeping Baby

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

It used to be that either I would have to feed Tao to sleep or Josh or me (or anyone else really, Mum always seemed happy to do it but he's ours etc ;) would have to carry him and cuddle him to sleep.

A couple of times he surprised us by falling asleep all by his cute little self.

Lately he's been doing that pretty much all the time. As long as he's fed and calm and ready for a nap we can put him down anywhere comfortable and he will go to sleep by himself. If he's down for a long nap he will sometimes wake up for a nappy change, and if still tired after that, a brief cuddle period usually has him back to sleep.

He is such a great little baby :)

He seems to be sleeping for as long as he's awake for lately which means he should be waking up right...about...now.

Philosophy

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

"Kids grow up too fast".

I'm more inclined to believe that kids grow up at a normal rate and that time is distorted by parents taking too long to get used to the phase of development the child is in until they're well into it and starting to get out of it, or being too self centred at the wrong time.

So we are going to enjoy every single day of Tao's life, not because we never know when we may lose him, but because he is an amazing piece of work, something beautiful, the greatest thing that both of us have the privilege to be responsible for, because he deserves the attention, and because we love him ever so very much.
