Finally! the Sun!
One of our friends was celebrating their birthday this weekend with a BBQ. Considering it has rained for about a month now we were very lucky to get the first proper day of sun!
Wilf had a great time charming the guests and meeting his little 8 week old friend properly for the first time. We also discovered that she is pretty much the same weight as Wilf was when he was born which reminded me just how big he is, in fact one of Tom's friends guessed he was one..(!)
I think because he is so big people forget that he has only just (yesterday) turned five months. I often get people asking me if he is eating yet or sitting up..or sleeping though the night (hahaha will that ever happen I wonder??) We want to hold off until six months until we give Wilf food to try and then it will only be fruit and veg I think.That is unless Wilf shows us any sign of wanting to try foods himself before that.
I read an interesting article about delaying solids until eight months here I'm not sure we will follow this but did make me think. I know my friends who long term breastfeed and practise baby led weaning have told me not to worry if Wilf doesn't eat properly until a year or so (I mean I will introduce them before then but mainly to compliment breast milk which will still be Wilf's main food source). That being said I am excited to see his face as he discovers flavours!Avocado!Mango!Banana!
Today we took a stroll around our local park, we brought along a thermos of coffee and I found a Whisper in my bag, score!
Hope you are all having/had a lovely weekend and got some long awaited vitamin D! xoxo
p.s is there anything cuter then baby wearing daddies?
