Mr Darcy

Mr Darcy is four months old today.

It's kind of mind-blowing to think that he's been with us for four months. In some ways it feels like he's been here forever, in others, as though four months has gone in a flash.

Mr Darcy is still a tiny baby, much smaller than most others of his age, but:

- He is incredibly alert and aware (right now, he's staring at the bug socks on his feet and trying to get hold of them)
- He smiles really frequently
- His face totally lights up when he sees someone
- Over the last couple of weeks, he's become completely fascinated by Maya
- He's also learned to laugh properly
- He can stand, if you support him for balance
- He adores his books, particularly the ones with textures in the pictures
- He has been over his health problems for over a month now
- He still doesn't like his baby bath, but it's almost bath time...

We may be exhausted all the time, but he is the most wonderful person to have in our lives.
