Harry: 10 months old

23 August 2016

Harry my boy it is getting closer and closer to your 1st Birthday.  And you are getting cuter and cuter by the day.  Your inquisitiveness and intelligence never ceases to amaze me.  You love to crawl all around the flat and search for me or Jack if we leave the room.  You ADORE your Daddy and just want to be held by him all the time.

You insist on standing in the bath now, you hardly ever sit down.  You new trick is to dip the sponge in the water and squeeze it outside the bath making a bit of a mess but that's OK! hehe  You are very attached to your dummy but as I write this I think you are becoming less so.  It depends on the day!

Sleep still isn't a thing you enjoy doing for extended periods of time but we will get there.  You sometimes surprise us and have long naps and when you sleep well in the evenings it is such a joy because I can work work work or drink endless cups of tea and watch series.  It is bliss.

You are our world.  You love your food and eat anything put in front of you.  You enjoy standing next to Jack and playing with him.  You hair is getting longer now and not as upright.  Your chubby thighs are just adorable and your cheeky grin makes my heart melt.  Your wave is just the cutest damn thing and I can't help but smile and be so proud of you.  It hasn't been easy and I know my mom skills have been lacking but as the days go by we are getting into a happy place.  I hope you know that I love you to the moon and back.

You enjoy playing "peek-a-boo" with a blanket, oh it is the sweetest thing. Naartjie and toast is your favourite along with a good old budoir biscuit.

You have made me realise that I need to slow down.  Some days I am just go, go go and thankfully we now have days at home where we play, eat, nap and just potter.  These are the days I cherish.  Thank you for helping your Mama realise the importance of slow days.

Love you to the moon and back Harry.
