Five Months Old
On Saturday, Giles turned five months old. I can't believe my screaming newborn bundle is already almost half a year old; everything has changed so completely since he arrived and I've learned so much about myself.
We've reached the point now where it feels as though Giles has always been here, and I can't imagine my life without him. This past month has been an interesting one as his personality is really starting to shine through. Looks wise, he is all Tom, but I'm seeing a lot of myself in his personality. Like me, he is very determined (some might call it stubborn!) and likes to do things for himself, rather than be helped. He's always on the go and always looking for the next thing to do. He's very curious about people and the world, which probably comes from my nosiness!
At the moment, all of his determination is focused on one goal: becoming mobile. He'll try anything to get where he wants to go, including pulling himself up on whatever is around, repeated rolling and a bizarre half-crawl-half-shuffle move. I have a feeling he is going to be a bit of a monster when he learns how to move around efficiently!
