Wow! 11 months! How did that happen?
I cannot believe that this time next month, Arjun will be a year. I’m really struggling to absorb that. My terrible memory means that everything just feels like a big fat blur! I have one month left till he’s a little toddler!
We celebrated with a (or two to make an “11”) homemade cookie crumble “sundae” which I made using baby rusks, hipp chocolate mousse and Heinz baby custard. We helped Arjun eat it – It tasted yum!
- My little jet setter has had his third holiday – to the Maldives for my 30th birthday
- He has thick curly locks which are so long now that I have to pin them back!
- He’s obsessed with finding tissue/paper and eating it!
- He has a new squinty smile where he scrunches his nose and he also has a new duck face that he does
- You can now give him a whole piece of food (e.g slice of toast) and he’ll break bits off to eat himself
- His first time in the sea
- He’s had his 8th flight
- He climbed a full flight of stairs
- He said mama (once!)
- First black eye from toppling over and banging in to coffee table
- Managed to open dishwasher door on to himself. You can see some more of his mishaps here.
- He loves ice cream
- He cries when he sees/hears a baby cry
- He’s very inquisitive
- He stands up in bath with no hands
- His favourite toys are his toy cars, trucks and tortoise
- He now picks his own toys
- He’s obsessed with the bathroom and if he ever goes missing that’s usually where you’ll find him!
- He now hands you things (when he feels like it)
- He co-slept for 3 weeks out of the 4 in his 10th-11th month.
- Had Mummy’s first birthday with him here
- Shakes his head to say no
- Can walk across the living room with a walker
- Been on his first ride at Willow’s Farm and loved it
- He loves Bob the Builder but not as much as Mickey Mouse
- He loves his new JCB tractor
- He has 6 teeth!
- He loves to get involved in absolutely everything – border line nosey!
He now feeds others his food and drink
Some of the new foods he has tried this month include:
- Coconut water

Next months update will be a whole whirlwind of emotions no doubt! Thanks for reading x
