2 firsts

photo taken 25 november...10 weeks, 5 days

We had a day of 2 firsts today. The first first was that after weeks of curiously following Harry around with his eyes, Atticus reached out and actually touched him on the nose! To which Harry responded by vigorously licking his hand until I had to pull them apart. Harry is constantly trying to get to Atticus: he licks him at any chance he gets, check on him when he's in his cot, sleeps next to him when he's sleeping in his swinging chair...so it was really exciting to finally see Atticus reach out to him. 

Their first interaction however, was when I was around 8 months pregnant; my belly swollen with a very active baby boy. Fil and I were vegging out on the couch in the evening when Harry jumped up for a cuddle. He leaned heavily on my belly, which didn't suit the little person inside. Harry jumped up in surprise at the forceful kick he received. He turned around, raised his eyebrows a bit and then leaned back down only to receive his second kick in the side!

The second first was that I discovered Atticus face down in is cot, with his head down the feet end, wriggling frantically away in his swaddle. So he's finally managed to roll over on his belly and rotated a full 180 degrees! We're constantly surprised at how active he is in his sleep. We've been going to bed to the sounds of mattress base clanging away against the bars as if he's trying to escape from his prison cell. I assume now would be the time to start weaning off the swaddle!?
