You have amazed me with your progress this past month and you continue to become more alert and aware of your surroundings every day. You now fully recognise mummy and daddy and can clearly see across the room as you have begun tracking our movements as we come and go.

Though we have not established a bedtime routine as such, you seem to be a really good sleeper and settle down of an evening about 7-8pm and then sleep through until 5-6 in the morning. You also spend the majority of the day sleeping, which your health visitor says is perfectly normal as you’re body’s working hard to grow and catch up. I forget sometimes that if you had arrived when you were due you would only be 1 1/2 months about now. That’s a big difference.

You have taken a severe dislike to tummy time and haven’t really shown much interest in your toys yet either, but you do like to lay on your back on your activity mat and look at yourself in the mirror. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come and please don’t turn out like daddy and take longer than mummy in the bathroom.

You are still a pretty easy, laid back baby with the sweetest of temperaments and i love the feeling of knowing i played some part in making you that way.

I had my first glimpse of a smile from you this month, which daddy sadly missed and i haven’t seen one since from you but i think next month we’ll be the month we see some real changes and achievements from you.

We have some exciting times ahead of us little man, so as always stay safe, stay strong and stay healthy.

Love From Mummy xxx
