Weigh In and Baby-Proofing

Henry was weighed again today, for the first time in five weeks, and his weight has jumped from 14lbs 10oz to 16lbs 4oz. He’s still following the 50th centile line exactly. He’s been so quick to pick up everything though, and I’m sure it won’t be long before he’s crawling. He can already roll over from his back to his front, and now from front to back. He does it repeatedly in one direction so he can pretty much move from one side of the rug to the other now. It’s scary how quickly he’s growing up. He not only holds his head up now, but supports his weight on his arms, in a┬ácute ‘baby press up’.

We really have to start (and finish rather rapidly) baby-proofing our apartment. Just looking around now I can see hazards everywhere. An enormous amount of candles and ornaments, glassware and art supplies that need to moved and made safe. The kitchen cupboards need to be secured (curse open-plan living) and the clutter needs to disappear.

Now if I could just find the housework fairy then it would all be okay. I think I lost her in amongst the junk…
