I cannot believe that my sweet boy is already 10 months old. I have not really given any kind of update on him in recent months and they are kind of fun to do from time to time so here goes. Raudhan finally stared sitting up about a month ago and that flip a switch in his little brain and he became a total social little being, becoming totally engaged in everything that the family does. He waves, blows kisses, and has quite a number of words (that Liam is proudly teaching him). He sings all the time and is rarely quiet. He totally adores his little sister and she is still really wonderful with him. Raudhan is still very attached to be (Morgaine says it is like there is a string attaching him to me and it wrapped around me). We continue to co-sleep and he is carried most of the time. He has no big urge to crawl but has a new found interest in standing so he may be one of those children that skip the crawling stage all together. I think that it will still be a while yet before that happens, though, he is too busy eploring the world up close and personal to be interested in going places.
Little boy also loves to eat and joins us in eating just about everything we do. He absolutely adores fishcakes and oats. A few weeks ago he started loosing some weight and had really bad diapers and we came to realise that he likely has some food intolerances. We are thinking that it is likely a wheat issue and meals have become a little interesting as meals often contain wheat and he wants EVERYTHING we eat. Hopefully his system just is not mature enough for grains yet and it will improve over the next few months.
Liam and Raudhan are very similar in personality and it has been a joy to watch their interactions. I think that even with a 7 year age difference they will be close. Liam will be an amazing teacher when wee boy grows up. I cannot wait to see how this relationship blossoms!
