11 months


With his impending first birthday, I reflected on the final month of babyhood!

Josh turned 11 months the day after we returned from our first trip away from him. I soaked him up on our return and whilst he took a week or so to settle back to his normal sleeping pattern, the trip left mama & dada refreshed, reflective and feeling very lucky to have such a precious boy to return to.

I had a growing concern that Josh’s gross motor skills were not aligned with his peers. Whilst I knew he was going from strength to strength in other milestones I just had a niggling feeling so got him booked in with the public doctor and sure enough the week I did he started moving a lot more. To this day he does not crawl in the traditional sense but he gets around in his own way…

As the month went on he got really fast shifting himself back to a seated position, pointing at everything, communicating in his own way. Another cold to boot and his first Halloween, a trip to get his first pair of shoes {a very special moment} then it was time to turn 1.

A common theme this first 9 months that I have written these posts is how fast time has gone but a year-it’s a milestone for all, not just him but myself and dada. We celebrated together over a glass of vino and some grub in a special pizza spot on Saturday night and have an exciting week ahead…
