3 months

At what point do you wake up and realise that you are a parent? Little A is 3 months old and being parents still doesn't feel real. Somebody said to me that it was the first time they were called "Mummy" by their child that it all seemed real. I certainly can't wait to hear Little A say that! In the meantime it feels so surreal and I just pray that I don't wake up from this dream.

The last month has seen Little A change in leaps and bounds. He has gone from a baby to a smiley, interactive little boy who always wants to engage with you and who could resist these beautiful big blue eyes. . .

Little A is fully aware that his hands belong to him now and more importantly that they can do cool stuff. He is slowly mastering grasping things but mostly he just likes to put those little hands in his mouth. His favourite way to greet a new toy or person is to put it or them (their hand) in his mouth. So offer your finger at your own risk! This is his latest victim:

"Mmm Sparky you smell good"

"I wonder what you taste like"

"Come on. . . just a little nibble"

"What?!?! I was just playing"

"See. . . We are playing nicely"!

When at home we have been passing the days reading, playing and singing. As long as Little A has my undivided attention he is a very happy little boy. We are going to have to work on playing happily on his own before the next one (baby) comes along. But for now I am more than happy to make the most of this one on one time!

"Now if I could just get over there I could turn the page. . ."

Big A loves his soccer and is super excited about the Euro Cup that starts in 2 more sleeps! So for the next 3 weeks there will be soccer, soccer and more soccer in this house. Honestly I wouldn't be suprised if Little A's first word ends up being "goal" with how soccer mad our house is about to go. I am even going to try my hand at baking a soccer ball cake on Friday to celebrate the first match (not the 3D kind just a flat one). I am not renowned for my skills in the kitchen so this should be interesting.

"What do you mean I have to wait for a goal to wave it?"

"But Mum, Dad gets to stay up all night and watch the soccer why can't I?"

Now that Little A has almost doubled his size he no longer fits in to half of his wardrobe. So the other week I got to packing up all the 00000 and 0000 and some of the 000 clothes. Can you believe how much he has grown out of in 3 wee months?

Apart from that we have just been keeping warm. The cooler weather has really set in now. Which is great for running and cuddling on the couch.

Finally, here is my favourite photo from this month. . .
