A Family And Lifestyle Blog With A Tropical Seychelles Twist!

Month: May 2016

Arthur is 35 months old

Arthur is 35 months old!  Our oh so nearly three year old, feels so weird to write that, I’ve only just settled in to calling him a 2 year old! As awful as it is to say it, this month has kinda been a bit […]

My Expat Family 22

Hello and welcome to My Expat Family 22 the twenty second ‘My Expat Family’ blog link up. So sorry that this month I am a week late in doing the link up!  Honestly I just totally forgot to do it last week (bad blogger!!) next month we […]

Freddie is 9 months old

Our little teeny tiny Freddie is 9 months old!!

Freddie is 9 months old

He really isn’t so teeny tiny any more but its a name that has definitely stuck for him, I’ll probably always call him that now, poor thing!!!

Freddie has well and truly mastered crawling this month, I can’t believe how fast he is! Its definitely making things a lot more challenging, especially when trying to keep an eye on Arthur as well.
He’s starting to cruise around the furniture a little bit now too, although he does still get upset trying to do it sometimes!
I think this month we will see Freddie being able to stand on his own, he’s definitely starting to try it for a couple of seconds here and there.

With Freddie being so keen to get around these days, bumps and bangs are coming thick and fast! We even had to do a trip to hospital after he got a nasty cut just above his eye from faceplanting the step into the shower. He was so very brave, but it looked nasty so wanted to get him checked out. No concussion or anything which was my main concern, but he did have to have a stitch in. Apparently they do not have butterfly stitches here in Seychelles, so it had to be a proper needle and thread stitch….no dissolvable stitches either so we had to go back to have it removed a week later my poor little guy. Seeing him in so much pain as they did it was horrendous; we had to pin him down, looking back on it still makes me feel sick!

Freddie is 9 months old
It has healed up very nicely though, and is already not very obvious which we are really thankful for!

A big thing for our little guy this month is that he is now in his own room. Well, actually we moved rooms and left him where he was, but you know what i mean! I remember when Arthur went into his own room and I had that exact same feeling of worry, sadness and separation. It didn’t take long for it to feel normal though and once I realised that I could definitely hear him when he woke up I was fine!

For me, the biggest thing that has happened this month – totally selfishly, is that Freddie is now sleeping through the night WOHOOOOO!! It’s been about 2 weeks now. I don’t think that its a coincidence that it has come around the time we moved rooms. It was the same with Arthur.
This does also mean that I have now finished breastfeeding. Like with Arthur though I kind of like that it happened like this, it’s been stopped by Freddie not by me!

Freddie has 2 bottles of formula a day now one first thing in the morning and one before bed. He’s eating three meals a day, and he really is eating too! This boy can put a serious amount of food away, its impressive! He’s got 5 teeth now (3 on top two on the bottom) and he’s definitely eating better as a result of it!

He continues to be the happiest little thing, and Arthur is definitely still the one to make him smile the most!  We are getting the 5 o’clock grumps though aka the witching hour!!  As soon as dinner is in front of him though he’s back to being happy again!

 

When your skin starts to fall off!

So I’m not going to include any pictures in this post, when your skin starts to fall off I don’t think any pics are required (or wanted!!) Around two weeks ago now I noticed a weird thing on my leg. This thing was around the […]
