Sophie is getting too big too quick. She usually has her solids while in her swing seat while it’s locked, but now we have moved up to a highchair *sob*. I feel like my baby is growing up so much faster than I thought. Even her crying sounds different…it’s more talkative..less like a newborn cry!

Sophie has also had her very first ride in a supermarket trolley. We were moseying around Asda and Sophie started to get a bit ratty. It’s quite new that she hates being in her pushchair now. I think it’s the freedom of being on the floor or sitting and grabbing at her toys that she prefers than the confines of her pushchair. Such a fusspot.

Anyway, she LOVED the trolley. Had to tighten the straps a bit though as she is still such a little dink that she doesn’t quite sit on her own. She has excellent head and neck control (has done since 2 days old)  and sits beautifully, but needs a little support still so she doesn’t tip sideways. Sophie has also somehow mastered NODDING!!! Lying on her back and babbling away, my girl can actually nod. It’s so cute and so weird.

Sigh… I didn’t really believe it when people told me how fast it would go…

Happy Half Birthday

To my gorgeous daughter! She is approaching 6 months and I had a look through all her photos, and decided to make some comparison shots! In the zebra print, Sophie is 3 weeks old, and today at 24 weeks. In the stripey one, Sophie is 2 weeks old and lying WIDTH WAYS on her mat, and still doesn’t meet the length. The other is yesterday

She is growing SO fast 😦

what a difference difference

No Silver Spoon…Just Plastic!

Sophie is being weaned! Oh GOD my baby is growing up!!!

We went around Asda today and bought some lovely bright orange plastic spoons and green star bowls. We got a load of Ella’s Kitchen pouches and a box of Cow and Gate baby porridge. We did a bowl of baby porridge when we got home – a bowl is about 6 teaspoons. She ate five of those six spoons as well as a 6oz bottle of formula!

Loving the porridge!
Loving the porridge!

She is a right little piggy and absolutely loved trying something new! She kept pulling these little faces that said how much she hated it but then she would smack her little lips and grin for more…as you can see!

We are going to try her on a pouch of warmed mashed banana tonight and then follow on with a bottle. Hopefully this will allow her to sleep through for longer as her tummy will be warm.

I felt SO tearful earlier. Mixture of total pride that she is growing up but also so sad that my tiny newborn is becoming more independent. She is my absolute sunshine and it makes me so sad to know that the wrinkly prawn is so big now.

I need to have a new baby!

I bought a gorgeous yellow dress with green tights for her for Church on Sunday.


I am so so excited that when we do her Christening Husband is getting himself baptised as well! He has already been christened into the Church of England but he doesn’t want us to go to different places when we die and wants Sophie to have a good example set for her. I think it’s wonderful! I cannot wait to tell his mother…
