5 months

Hamish, my darling baby

You're 5 months old today. Already. I can't believe it.
More firsts this month! Your first swim! Your first family holiday!
Your personality is really really showing now, and I adore it. You are a beautiful, gentle, shy, and kind little boy. When Lach is crying, you coo at him and stroke his arm. You smile all the time, at anyone who takes the time to look into your eyes. But especially at your "peeps". You love your Mama, your Daddy, and Lachie. Your smile lights up my heart. It is truly beautiful.
You are now 6.3 kgs! Always growing. Sometimes I want to press 'pause' just so that I can keep my darling little baby for just a second longer.
All the love in the universe,
Your Mama

Darling Lachlan, my tiny one
Ah, you are a character. You make me laugh and laugh. Your smile brightens up my day, and melts my heart. The way you smile at me when I am the first thing you see in the morning is something I can't even describe with words. It's a heart thing. It gets into my heart.
You are such a happy enthusiastic little person. And your zest is infectious. Everyone who is around you ends up laughing at your antics. You don't do anything by halves. And now that you're rolling, you are even more active. You think rolling is the absolute best thing ever. You flip yourself around and then look expectantly at anyone near you - awaiting your applause.
You're 5.85kgs now ! Such a big boy.
I love you darling one
Your Mama


  1. Oh dear lord they are gorgeous! Brings back (foggy) memories of my girls at that age.

    Isn't it amazing at how they interact with each other? Playing, soothing,discovering - it's amazing.

    Love that you address them separately, I do that too xxx

  2. Thanks Liss! I am amazed everyday at how much they are noticing and interacting with each other.
    I have twin sisters (who are only about 20months younger than me) so know precisely how important it is to treat them as individuals. They h.a.t.e.d. being "the twins". I'm trying my hardest. Actually, I never even call them twins, I always refer to them as 'the boys'. So that's a start :)


Thank you for posting! You've just made my day :)
