Sideways sleeping is Leo’s latest trick, that and belly sleeping. Neither are an issue until he comes to fidget and at that point, he can get a little bit shouty!
Being in his own room doesn’t appear to have phased him in the slightest which is great. I had to get up a few times last night though to assist with rearranging. It’s tricky though, I feel if I keep helping him then he won’t learn for himself. I also don’t want him to wake up fully and be upset! It’s probably just a phase as with everything else, until that passes, his music animals will act as barriers to deter rolling. They are firm so not a suffocation risk.
Leo has spent the last couple of days exercising his tongue in a different direction, as you can see! The result of that being totally new sounds this morning. His tongue now flattens and touches the roof of his mouth, allowing the D sound to begin. Looks like Daddy is going to be the first word after all!
I love watching the development of speech, it’s an amazing process and I never expected all the new additions and progressions to be so obvious. Its such a treat to see it all happening.
Weaning is still going well. I made a crustless quiche the other day, using duck eggs and cottage cheese as well as a whole host of vegetables and garlic. Well, he absolutely loved it! I haven’t the faintest idea where he put it all tbh, but he did amazingly well. We tried a passion fruit which resulted in anger, was too sharp I’d say. He goes read in the face and shouts at me, it’s incredibly funny but I really shouldn’t laugh at him as it’s not very respectful or responsive!
