These are a few of our favourite things

SP is over a month old now - time is flying by. He's also passed the 5 kg mark, and the number of clothes in the 'too small' pile is steadily growing. It feels like our learning curve has started to flatten out just a little, and we're all getting into the new rhythm of life together.

SP's favourite things (as far as we can tell):
  • Feeding. He's still living up to his nickname of 'little piranha'.
  • Bathtime. He loves being in the water, and he's starting to kick around more. He's not such a fan of being dressed and undressed, though.
  • Tummy time. He's got amazing head control for his age. And that's not just my bias - on Thursday starred as a 'typical one-month-old' in a training video being made by the physios at my work and they were very impressed too.
  • People talking to him. He'll focus himself totally on the conversation, making terrific eye contact. Mind you, he focuses just as intently on lights and doorframes...
My favourite things about life with SP:
  • His incredibly expressive face, when he's sleeping, feeding, looking around, and even when he's crying. I could watch him all day.
  • Being able to physically nourish him completely. The human body is an amazing thing.
  • Bathtime. One of my favourite activities. I just love watching him enjoy himself and having lovely interactions with him.
  • He knows me and he likes me! There's a real recognition there now, especially when he's being held by someone else and I come over. Ah, the love :)
