Life around here

At the end of October, Theo switched from the nursery to one of the big kid groups at the Kita. With that also came a new schedule, and he is now at home three days a week for naps here at the house and afternoons with me. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays I have a little bit more time to do things that need doing without a toddler toddling around because he stays until 3 pm. Still, it’s been a big change. A positive one, because he is on to bigger and better things and will learn and grow a lot in the upcoming years in his new group.

Avi is 5 months old already and there isn’t one shred of newborn baby left in him. (waah! I kind of miss it!) While it’s sad to turn my back on those short-lived cuddly newborn days, it’s still so enjoyable watching him learn and grow. He is getting better at a lot of things. He grabs everything he can get his hands on — and puts it directly into his mouth, of course! — and is generally much more coordinated. He’s sitting up well with support, and now rolls over onto his belly almost as soon as I put him down. Avi is also bigger than Theo was back then. At 5 months, Theo was in the 9th percentile for weight; Avi is in the 45th percentile. Which means that he is wearing 6- to 9-month clothes now! He sure is growing like a weed.

I’m still exclusively breastfeeding until he turns 6 months old, but before we know it he will be starting solids and we will be doing Baby-Led Weaning like we did with Theo. To be honest, I’m sure he will love it, but it makes me sad that diaper changes will become more stinky.
