Eleven month adventures

In only one month’s time my baby son will be one year old! It seems amazing that soon he won’t be a baby, but a toddler running around and having adventures. This month, Oscar has had a

number of exciting experiences, including visiting Sizergh – post here – and discovering his first chicken, his first tooth emerging and learning how to shake his head, as if to say ‘no’.

This little chicken had escaped from her pen in to the lunching area at Sizergh and Oscar was captivated as she scouted the tables, looking for scraps. If we dropped a piece of bread she would come running, only to be scared away by Oscar’s flailing hands. After lunch, Oscar walked all around the picnic benches, while holding my hands, and we watched the daffodils dancing.

Oscar has a big interest in animals and, acquiring Hugo, a little rescue cat, has been an exciting event for all of us! Hugo is so friendly and patient with Oscar, he is not bothered by his screams and tantrums, and is happy to offer himself to be stroked aka tail pulled. He is goofy and very forgiving and usually Oscar likes to use one finger to trace the white sections of fur in his dark coat, before gently grasping his ears and thowing his face in to his fur.

Oscar can now push himself up on his hands and knees and crawl a few steps, although his favourite thing to do is just stay there, rocking backwards and forwards and practice swaying. He has suddenly learnt to shake his head, much to others’ amusement and loves to do it for attention, while he is shouting. His words so far are “dadadada” and “nananana” and occasionally imitates a word when he hears it from us, which is an amazing experience!

We’ve been waiting what feels like a long while for a tooth to emerge and his bottom gums have finally produced what looks like a blob of rice pudding. We were completely fooled until we noticed the spoon catching on it and realised it was solid and firmly rooted in his gums!

 It’s come up a lot more since I took these photos and he was able to show it off at a dinner party we had, down in the West Midlands. He enjoyed his beans and mash so much and it’s now up there on his list of favourite foods, alongside morning weetabix. His favourite toys are his new glowing, musical Makka Pakka, Christmas snowman (still) and colourful bead frames.

Right now, Oscar’s favourite activity is zooming around like a mini Davros in his walker, where he targets peoples’ ankles and clothes horses alike. Thank you so much for your comments and feedback, it means a lot!! Pictures of Hugo to come soon 😉 I’m debating how often to do Oscar’s updates after he turns one year – how often would you like to see them? ♡

    You have such a beautiful family, little Oscar is so sweet. I hope Hugo is settling in well, I got my first cat when I was a toddler and I think having pets from a young age helps people become caring adults, so I will be doing the same when I have a child 🙂 Look forward to seeing photos of Hugo x
