The rest of April...

 Louis was on all 4's after his bath and keeps pulling himself up to standing.  Oh my goodness.

Getting ready to crawl!!! 

I was sick with a cold so we just hung out together and played...

By the 25th every 2nd night Louis would only have 4 milk feeds.  So overnight he went 7.45-7.15am with no feed!! Wow!

He also was mostly just having the 2 day sleeps and would stay up for around 2 - 2 1/2 hours at a time.

He was always throwing things off his high chair and bopping away to music a lot.  He is still trying to pull up to standing on my leg!

We had a busy weekend with dinner with our friends Matt & Erica and a birthday lunch for Sharon and Robbie and Mums house.  

This is such a fun time of life!

Here's a video from around this time:

Easter camping: Wilsons Prom 14-17th April

So this was our first trip camping with Louis!  We were excited and perhaps a little concerned as to how it would go! 

Off we go!

On our way...

I ended up in the back at one point to help keep him  happy.  It was a big drive.  

 We camped with my brother Robbie and his partner Lea.

Louis in the front of the car...

The birds kept getting into the chocolate hot cross buns we had...

It was the best idea to bring his little couch down...

The pram was a make shift high chair.  

Louis had his first little munch on vegemite toast...

Louis is standing up here!  (You can see that I'm behind him ready to catch)

A tiring but fantastic weekend.  Louis was chatting away a whole heap and constantly working o pulling himself up to standing.  He's growing way too fast!

A rough week...

We had a rough week this week after Louis had a bad reaction to his 6 month old vaccinatios.  He was not a happy camper.  He was up constantly all night and needed cuddles all day.  It was so sad for him.  Aren't I a great Mum for capturing his tears on camera?

On an upnote we had his MCHN stats:
Weight: 7.43kg
Height: 65.5
Head circumference: 43.5

The many faces of Louis...

He sits up all of the time on the ground now.  I just put a couple of pillows behind him in case he falls.  By Thursday he was starting to laugh again but he was still off his milk a little.

April life...

Michael had a birthday party at our home for his birthday which proved to be far too noisy for Louis who couldn't sleep.  I think that was the beginning of realising that having a fun late night with friends had big consequences the next day when as a Mum I couldn't sleep in and rest like I once would.

Mostly Louis's sleep was going pretty well by now.  He would have 2 bigger day sleeps or 3 naps and would lspee much better overnight waking for only one feed.  

I would spend hours sitting with Louis on his blankets and playing and chatting with him.  I didn't get much else done but that time was so special.

More photo shoots...on our unmade bed! haha.  No doubt it was taken in the early morning when we just played and hung out. 

Love this kid...
