life with Saxon - month four

Our little boy is getting bigger and stronger, weighing in at 7kg’s this month! He’s loving tummy time at the moment, pushing himself up so far that he rolls onto his back.
We’ve made 6 trips in total to the doctors this month – 3 of them for Saxon, the other 3 for his big brother Caelan & myself. Winter just isn’t being kind to us. Despite Saxon’s chesty cough, snotty nose & ticklish throat, we can still find a way to make him giggle :) He has such a fun personality and I love watching it grow with him.
I love that Saxon is starting to get better hand-eye coordination. It’s so rewarding watching him grasp toys in his tiny little hands.
It’s still so unbelievable that it has been 4 months since  he was in my tummy, about to make an appearance. Every month he has been here has been a total blessing. I hope you will check back in next month :)

a special bond

There is a special bond between Saxon and his great grandmother Beryl. At only three weeks old, Saxon shared his first smile with her. Even when Saxon is in the grumpiest of moods, Nanna Beryl can make him laugh.
Saxon takes after her in the way of her olive skin and her dark hair. She always tells us it’s the Italian coming out in him.
I really love this photo that i took of them sharing a cuddle. I will treasure this forever.
Nanna Beryl turned 84 this year & has many many more years ahead of her :)
