Playtime with sis

Roy is now commando crawling about the place, and busy getting into everywhere. He's keen on bottom shelves & cables at the moment.

He's teething of course, and carrying a heavy cold at the moment, but he's still sticking to his blissful routine of a 11-12 hour sleep overnight and usually 2 sleeps a day. I'm also lucky that he is a fantastic eater. He is an eating machine, whatever is offered goes in.

I had his hearing checked this week, and he failed due to huge fluid build-up. He had an ear infection a few weeks ago, so we have hope it will clear on its on. We still have to see an ENT Surgeon, but they wouldn't do grommets at his age - especially with his cardiac condition. The ENT will be able to give a more thorough review of his hearing function, which the audiologist though was OK other than the fluid. He doesn't babble much which is why I got it checked. He's only saying dada dada, but you'd usually be getting more than that by 9 months.

Kitchen cupboards

Here is Roy's new favourite spot in the kitchen. For those who also follow Sheena Time, she used to hang out there when she was a baby.

Nine months now

Roy is travelling along well. Unfortunately he had a fairly average holiday to the beach this year. He had a heavy cold, so was not his smiley self. He's mostly over that now.

He had a birthday party to attend today, and was keen on the watermelon. As you can see, he is also keen on lamb cutlets.

His big sister is much more excited about playing with Roy now he's a lot more interactive. Bath time MUST include both of them now, so no quick baths in the baby-bath anymore for Roy. He is also a necessity whenever we go - anywhere basically. Roy-Roy-Roy (which is what Sheena calls him) has to tag along, even if it is just into the kitchen or down to the rumpus.

He started one day of creche last week, as I've been planning my return to work in May. He was fine about it, but didn't sleep well. Particularly in the afternoon. He is the sort of baby that can manage on a short nap, but I am not the sort of mother to encourage that, so I hope that he can get used to it enough to rest well.

Unfortunately for me on the work-front, I've been made redundant, and got a payout, which I only found out on Tuesday. I am feeling very neutral about it - not excited, not devastated, just it is what it is.
