Our splendiferous, wondercrump, whoopsey-splunkers, phiz-whizzing, whipple-scrumptious ickle grunion is six-months old today and thriving. He’s such a happy little chap, is getting delightfully vocal and bestows charming grins with marvellous generosity. At 6.7kg, he’s getting really chubby. His eye colour is changing from blue to the browny-green Colin has. His hair still has a reddish tinge, but it’s hard to know what colour the new hair is as it’s still so fine and there’s not much of it.
He’s coping well with his older brother’s increasingly boisterous affections. On Saturday he had his first taste of solids. Cameron got very excited about this milestone and took it upon himself to make sure it took place. So not only did Aiden have to cope with an entirely new texture, he had to cope with it as speed as his brother kept the spoonfuls coming! He didn’t bat an eyelid, swallowed his sweet potato happily and seems content with his place in the pecking order.
We’ve been working hard at our exercises and Aidy is starting to roll over by himself (when on a slope and given a gentle push-start). He’s also starting to sit nicely when supported. There are no teeth in sight yet, but he is chomping on whatever he can grab so perhaps they are imminent.
His personality is emerging and we are getting to know a friendly, pensive, calm little man. We just love him madly.
