At the beginning of this month, Elis turned six months. It feels quite a milestone (and I wonder if sleeping for a full night might appear soonish....). I am not so aware of what he should be doing according to the books as I had been for Isobel, more going with the flow and letting him find his own way. He loves sitting up now and being part of the action - especially laughing at Isobel's antics. I can see her being very much in charge, bossy (and I slight wince at the idea of history repeating itself), but she does adore him.
A third of my maternity leave left - I wish I could stop the time whizzing by.
