Duncan wasn't clapping while other children his age were, I became paranoid about this , and started to question every single silly thing... within a week he was! And now he does it all the time which is very cute. This made me realise even more so, that every child is so different, and what one might be doing at 11 months, the other may take another month to master it! So black mark for me, for becoming 'one' of those paranoid mummies!!
Duncan has 8 teeth, and hopefully having a little break from them coming in, as he has been so unhappy with them for ages! He has become funny with his food recently, and is trying to gain some independence on the feeding front. He can't feed himself with a spoon, but will happily finger food almost anything. Bread sticks and homous are a favourite, closely followed by raspberries, blueberries and strawberries, but his staple diet does seem to be petit filous!!
I can't believe it has been a year since he was born. It seems like ages ago since he was lying sleeping as a new born, but on the other hand, he has suddenly grown into this little boy who we love soooo much!
He is such a smiler at the moment, and really knows how to work a room! He is so busy staring at people, trying to catch their attention, just so he can give them a big smile! He is having a little birthday party tomorrow, with his little pals from playgroup. Here is a photo of him on his new trike. 1 week before his birthday.
