Ten months old & dress up days


Introducing my 10 month old Yoda baby! Oscar and I have lots of fun dressing up: one day he is batman, the next, a teenage mutant ninja turtle. I love those babygrows that come with
matching hats, they are so adorable and Oscar seems only too happy to oblige (presuming he gets his layer yoghurt afterwards). So far, this month has been very special for me, as I got to experience my first Mother's day! Although Oscar is a little young to understand - I did get an extra special filled nappy on the day! - Mitch's family was so kind and gifted me a painted photo frame with a picture of my little bear. I also received a beautiful rose gold Pandora 'Mom' charm from Mitch and romantic card. It was so special as I really didn't expect to receive anything!

I really think that loving a baby so much comes from everything you can give them in terms of new experiences, like going out for dinner, eating mashed potatoes and the feeling of hugs and kisses. I didn't bond with Oscar at first, not until he was months and months old, which worried me, but now he is older I feel love growing and growing with him. Discovering the wonder of each simple thing all over again for the first time for him makes me truly fall in love in a way I didn't anticipate. Oscar has now learnt to clap his hands and knows when to initiate 'pat - a - cake', has formed an addiction to the library's childrens corner, and is incredibly inquisitive, aka loves to investigate the fire and any forms of technological equipment we are using!

He has also begun what we call 'the ten month tantrums', where he shouts and screams and flails his body about if he doesn't get his own way, is being fed something other than yoghurt or has to go back in his pushchair when we leave the library, most often in public. On a sweeter note, he loves to communicate with us and happily makes little mumbly noises to tell us about his day, the dreams he had or how yummy that yoghurt was at teatime. We live through our 'firsts' all over again through his eyes, which is the most warm, magical feeling.

This month, Oscar graduated from his bouncer seat and moved in to his baby walker. He has taken to it so well and loves zooming around interacting with us and the fire and seeing what we are up to. The ability to move around on his own has made him so happy, although we are still trying to encourage him to get moving on his own around our little flat! I really love this photo of him above, with his little face and sumptuous eyes.

Read more about our little bedtime routine here - and forgive me for any more Oscar costume photos that follow. With so many different little costumes and superhero suits in the shops, it's so hard to resist a dressing up day. I just secretly wish they came in adult sizes
