Harry’s Six Month Update

Harry’s Six Month Update

Harry is six months old today and I can’t believe it. This half a year has absolutely flown by and has been the best six months of my life. I’m so glad I have been documenting what he’s been up to for the last couple of months because I’m already enjoying looking back on them.

Weight & Size

Harry was weighed yesterday and is now 17lb 14oz. He is now on about the 60th centile but he had a really bad cold for a couple of weeks at the beginning of the month, and I didn’t feel like he had put much weight on so I’m not surprised that he has dropped a bit from the 75th centile. I’m not worried about this little drop though as he still looks lovely and chunky and has put on some weight. He is now fully in 6-9 month clothes, and all of the 3-6 month clothes have been put away!

Harry’s Five Month Update

Harry’s Five Month Update

Harry was 5 months old yesterday and I know everyone says it but I really can’t believe how fast the last 5 months have gone! He is so big now and we are definitely well out of the newborn stage which makes me so sad, although he is so much more fun now!

Weight & Size

Harry was weighed last week and is 17lb 0oz and is still tracking on just below the 75th centile. He has grown out of some of his 3-6 month clothes and others are fitting perfectly so I’m having to get out some of the 6-9 month outfits. It’s always so sad putting away the smaller clothes! At least it’s fun dressing him in new stuff! I think it’s almost time for another shopping trip!

Harry’s 4 Month Update

Harry’s 4 Month Update

This update is a little bit late as Harry was 4 months old on 14th October but I thought it would be better to write it late than not at all.

Weight & Size

Harry was last weighed on 3rd October and he weighed 15lb 8oz! He is now at almost the 75th centile so he is doing really well (he was on the 50th when he was born). He is still in his 3-6 month clothes but whereas before the legs and arms were quite long on him, they seem to be fitting a lot better now.

Harry’s 3 Month Update

Harry’s 3 Month Update

I can’t believe Harry is already 3 months old! The time is going so fast that I thought I would write an update, so I can remember what he is like at 3 months when he is leaving home for university and I’m crying into his babygrows!

Weight & Size

Harry is only weighed once a month now as his weight has always been fine. He was last weighed on 31st August and was 13lb 8oz! He is still at roughly the 60th centile so is doing really well! He is now in 3-6 month clothes and I’m really enjoying dressing him in lots of new outfits! Dungarees seem to be a definite hit at the moment.

The first trimester (Part 2)

The first trimester (Part 2)

I wrote about how I found out I was pregnant in The first trimester (Part 1), and I thought I would carry on with talking about my first trimester by discussing the symptoms I experienced.

Symptoms

The first symptom I experienced, I actually felt about a week before I found out I was pregnant, and that symptom was really sore boobs. Even though we were trying for a baby it didn’t even occur to me that sore boobs was a hint that I was pregnant, but I remember saying to my best friends that I wanted to stick my boobs in an ice bucket! It even hurt to go in the shower and have the water touch them, and felt like they had grown to page 3 size overnight! This symptom eased as I progressed to the second trimester but my boobs will probably never be the same as they were pre-pregnancy, which is a real darn shame.

What My Kid Wore #3

What My Kid Wore #3

This is another What My Kid Wore post, connected to the link up from This Mama Life. I really enjoy doing these posts because I am a lover of collecting memories, and my first three months of motherhood has flown by, so it’s so lovely to have photos to look back on. Harry is now 12 weeks old and is doing really well. He’s now fitting into some of his 3-6 month clothes so I’ve had fun dressing him in some new outfits that I’ve been waiting for him to fit into!
