Sometimes it seems like the baby stage lasts forever. If you have to change another dirty nappy, or mop up another milk spew, you will not be responsible for your actions.
Then at other times it seems like they grow up and change so quickly, and you wish you could slow it down.
Toby is going through one of those fast changing phases this week. He is refusing to sleep, because he doesn’t want to miss out on anything; he is starting to use more words, and he chatters on and on. He has discovered his ability to climb (up everything) and he is being
irritatingly independent, and resents being laid down to have his nappy changed, or removed from any of the high things he has climbed upon.
He is also showing quite a sense of humour, pulling funny faces, and deliberately putting funny things on his head or feet and giggling to show that he is being funny.
He also shakes his head no whenever he is doing something he knows he shouldn’t (although he still does it).
It’s like we can see him growing before our eyes… Stop it Toby!
