38/365: having a tough time
Poor Buzzy had a tough couple of weeks. With all this cruising around I guess it was bound to happen but I was still shocked to find out he had fractured his skull after a minor fall from standing. Then in the children’s hospital (presumably) he picked up a viral infection. Poor Buzzy! It’s also over 30 degrees here so all in all he has refused most food and drink for the last couple of days. Yesterday we had dinner on the balcony and I just let him at it, he did eat a good amount but mostly I was happy to see him having fun making a mess :-) frozen berries (the smallest ones), frozen peas and bread went down well! If he keeps this up I’ll have to work protein in there, I hope he gets his appetite back soon. Still smiling though of course!

37/365: 9 months and cruising
Since it’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog I’ve included a few photos of the last month or so. Buzzy is really on the move and interested in everything. He can’t stand unaided but he can cruise and crawl at top speed. I reckon he’ll be walking by his first birthday!

36/365: Working out

Buzzy’s latest trick. I caught him actually trying to climb. It’s hard to believe that a week ago I was worried that he wasn’t sitting up yet! Will he be walking soon?!

35/365: Cruising!
Buzzy is 7 months and 1 week old. I was getting worried because he still doesn’t want to sit, only crawl! Then I caught him doing this, all by himself, and I thought there is nothing to worry about! And to think I was going to give away this chair because he didn’t use it!

34/365: Excited for summer
The weather has been amazing here for the last week or so. This means we can take Buzzy to the park and let him explore! It was so cute to see him play with the daisies and feeling the grass. By the end of the summer he could even be walking, can you imagine! Oh and we gave him a haircut.. doesn’t he look all grown up?! :-)

33/365: ‘Solid’ foods
I’m busy making purées of various combinations for Buzzy. So far I have had little success with chicken but today baked chicken, sweet potato and apple seemed to go down well. He absolutely loves to chew on bread but I guess it’s just the texture rather than the taste. It’s fun to watch him eating proper solid food but it’s definitely more scary, not sure I’m ready for that yet!

32/365: Interaction I went to the local parent support centre today to get Buzzy weighed and ask the doc some questions. Buzzy is 7.8kg, pretty average for his age. Afterwards I had a hot chocolate and chatted witha friend while Buzzy played with another baby. So cute to see them interacting with each other! He still prefers to crawl than sit but overall everything is great!

31/365: First day at the playground!
Now that the weather is improving we spent a little while this afternoon at a playground. There aren’t that many things Buzzy can go on at this age but he definitely enjoyed this swing!
