Otto is four months (and one week) old, already. I know everyone says that time flies, but this third time around, it really is whizzing and I wish there was a pause button! Otto is a joy. He is so laid back and contented and really has slotted perfectly into our lives. He has slept with me from day one - we didn't even go down the route of trying him in his own bed/space as from previous experience, it hasn't worked. Therefore, I am so much more relaxed and I don't worry in any way about sleeping issues. Babies aren't made to sleep through the night, so the less time we spend stressing about it, the better life becomes! No expectations.
At the moment, Otto is very interested in holding toys and exploring textures - he keeps trying to swipe my food, so I don't think it will be long before he has a little taster of something other than breast milk. He's also trying to sit up, and I don't think it will be long either. Most of all he loves to be held (pretty much all day) and cuddled and kissed. He's a very sweet-natured little boy and I can already tell he's going to be a lovely person.
