One month after

It's been a month since his birthday? Seems like ages! Dylan is 13 months old. Throughout these 13 months, I have only been apart from him once, when I brought Kayden to watch a kid's play. And coincidentally tonight I left Dylan for the second time, this time to watch Corinne's play! It was hilarious and I totally enjoyed myself watching all 10 plays. Anyway, I digress :p

This month Dyl has a few new tricks! Am I sounding like I am talking about my pet? Hehe anyway he can FINALLY feed himself biscuits! Before he could pick up the biscuits but always had trouble with the release into his mouth. You will see him struggling with 3 or 4 fingers all squished into his little mouth not sure what he had to do to get the biscuit landing on his tongue :p

He has also learnt to point and ask (or rather signal in caveman language) for what he wants. Eg, if he wants a toy beyond his reach or a biscuit on the table, he will point to it (he's very good at pointing!) and look at you and utter,"Ugh ugh!"

He is also nursing more often now especially in the night! At least 3 times :( In the daytime if he wants to nurse, he will now have this terribly clever way of showing you, he will climb onto my lap and lie down in the nursing position! HAHAHA! Then he looks at you, waiting patiently for you to offer him, if I take more than 20seconds to "get his drift", he will start pulling at my tee :s

Diet wise, he loves bread or muffins in the morning and can eat a whole bun if he's hungry. Guess it's time for me to do some baking!

He's becoming a tidy boy, he likes to keep his brother's jigsaw or lego pieces into their respective containers. And as you can see from the picture, he loves balls now, especially the easter eggs we have in the studio. Each morning, he will go pick them up and put them into the baskets or knock a couple of them together for fun. When playing with Kayden, he loves to be chased and will scream in hysterics while giggling as they run around the sofa. Watching them play always brings a smile to my heart :)

Oh and I almost forgot, he can wave goodbye! If he likes you, he will wave many times and in your presence, sometimes with both hands and smiling cheekily. If he is wary of you, he will wave goodbye AFTER you have left :p

I can't believe he's already 1 (& 1 month). I haven't been round the blogs much. Once X is here, I'll most definitely arrange a session at your new studio. Hope all is well with you.

I've always thought that they would sleep through once they got older, but alas, my hopes are dashed. Devon used to sleep through when he was younger but then he started waking up to nurse as well, sometimes every 2 hours, really peng san. & I love how Dylan indicates that he wants to nurse in the day, so smart!
