Yes, its been somewhat of a lazy end to this week after a promising start. It seems in my eagerness to get back into shape I’ve gone and aggravated my back. I’ve been to the doctor and I have an inflamed muscle in my lower back. Nothing serious but just got to take it easy and be controlled with my exercises. So I’ve abandoned them for now, not really the way to go but I’ve done some much needed catching up with old friends and even managed to do some reading.
Tobin is coming on well and is keeping both myself and my partner thoroughly entertained with his developments. He is entertaining himself a lot more at the minute and is happy to sit in his chair or lay on the floor with his toys without having either of us there. We’re always around but he doesn’t seem to notice, I was told a while ago by the health visitor that it’s good for him to play with his toys on his own and not to rely on having someone there. It should help in future so he can get himself to sleep and things like that, I hope anyway.
We are letting him have a lot of nappy free time before his bath, not only to give him some air but to let him wriggle about. He goes mad when his nappy is off and has been attempting to crawl, he looks like he’s got the strength in his legs just not in his arms yet but he’s certainly giving it a good go. He’s rolling about a bit too, he can go from front to back but hasn’t yet started rolling from his back to his front. The books say he should grad his feet and then roll but as yet he isn’t really acquainted with his feet so that could be a little way off.
This weekend hasn’t been as laid back as last weeks but still our little family is quite content. All that needed doing has been done and we’ve had visits from Grandad Banner and me and Tobin went to see Grandad and Auntie G earlier in the week so he’s getting to see everyone, although he has been crying at people more..both Grandad’s got it this week, not good.
Hopefully more updates to come in the week and I’m hoping to get back into the exercise (carefully though).
