Mitchellin Man

A few Christmas photos, I know a bit late, but better late than never...

Well, almost 7 months old and thriving. Mitchell is very big for his age and is learning so fast (as most babies do, I suppose). He is sitting albeit still very wobbly and rolls around a lot. We have to put the sides of the cot up now as he is pulling himself up on the side railing when it is down. He is very curious about the world around him and likes to look at everything. He also likes to study his hands and suck his toes.

He is absolutely adorable, such a good-natured baby in general, though he does like to make himself heard if he is not getting his own way! We have started on solids. He has been having porridge since 5 months and now has purity fruit or veg in the evenings too. I am still breast-feeding twice a day though when those teeth arrive I may have to reconsider! It has been looking like they will come out for a while now but they are just teasing us and are really taking their time.

His big brother absolutely adores him and likes to look after him while I have to do things around the house. But just for short bursts, he can't hold Mitchell for very long as he is very heavy.

I have some more photos but I will put them into a separate post.
