Seth is getting a huge personality now and really loves testing his limits, but every time he does something and you tell him that he can’t, he does it anyway! As he gains more and more confidence every day, he picks up more and more speed, both crawling and cruising on furniture!
Milestone wise he carry’s on reaching all the typical milestones for his age. Since last month he now is able to stand alone for a few seconds. He does love giving big smiles to everyone he meets, even sometimes flirting with people by hiding his face when people interact with him. He seems to understand simple instructions like ‘come here’ or ‘sit down’, he knows his name and certainly knows the words “stop” and “no”. He also now can drink from a cup independently. He lets me know all the time with gestures what he wants, particularly when he wants food! He is showing signs of his brain developing by putting objects into a container and getting them back out, by himself. He copies me during play and sings/dances whenever he hears me doing the same. He loves nothing more than watching his brothers and interacting with them.
Week forty – this week we went out delivering birthday presents to all our friends (the end of October is a big month of birthdays for us). It was also Halloween this week, go check out my recent blog post about what we got up to.
Week forty one – we went to visit my dad this week. It was also bonfire night, which I’ve wrote about previously (go check out the blog post about what we did). The weekend was dedicated to remembrance Sunday and we did a few activities around this. I also cut out a lot of food types this week as I thought it may be affecting Seth through my milk supply (I’ve since found out it hasn’t).
Week forty two – this week was all around preparations for Tobias’ birthday, making sure everything was in place and then celebrating the day (as best we could). Go check out my recent blog post about what we plan on doing in the summer for his birthday treat.
Week forty three – this week was our routine dentist appointments which Seth came with us, Gavin had to have a filling. Finally on the 1st December the boys opened their first Christmas boxes (new tradition started this year), which included Christmas plates , bowls and cups and their Christmas jumpers.
Let’s see what the next couple of months brings us before Seth turns one! He has come on leaps and bounds in the last couple of months and I love waking up to see what new things he’s figured out overnight, his new found learning is coming on super quickly at the moment.
