Octopus baby

It’s been a while since I posted a Nathan update. He is now at the 10-month mark. He has been moving so fast these days it’s been a challenge keeping up with him.

Since that initial attempt at pulling himself standing, he’s now progressed on to cruising around on his feet, holding on to furniture and anything he can find.

We’re now into the octopus baby mode where those hands just get into everything. We now have to be very conscientious at making sure we keep anything important far away out his reach.

Our coffee table, side tables, TV bench, lower shelves are now so clutter free! (the clutter has been migrated elsewhere). Otherwise here are some examples of things that could happen…

My sewing projects have slowed down also because of all this. I used to be able to sew whilst Nathan sits in his high chair watching on contently. But now he just cannot sit still. He wants to touch, see and taste everything. But after a long while, I’ve finally finished another couple of items especially for me.

Thankfully this little contraption helps buy me intervals of time here and there throughout the day when he’s awake…

Even so after a while, this cheeky fella will insist on being taken out so he can continue moving and exploring. Every day is a new adventure!

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
