Joseph is 8 months, 1 week and a day old today.
When he was born last November, I said I would start my own diary.
It’s taken me 8 months to do it. Doesn’t bode well for the future!
What made me do it? Listening to Father and Son (the cover by Boyzone, not the original).
In 8 months he’s changed my life in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I used to be focused on my work, my hobbies, things that interested me and took all of my time.
Free time is a distant memory 🙂
Do I care? A little. Something different is the cause of my happiness now. I’m still as happy as I was, just for different reasons now.
In 8 months, he’s learnt how to roll over, sit up, eat from a spoon (and a fork, and chopsticks..), stand up almost by himself, and say “mama” and “dada”. His teeth started to come through in the last week. Dr Hammar the pediatrician claims to have seen only one other child whose upper incisors came out before the lower ones. He’s special 🙂
I hope, when he’s a little older, I can come back to this log and show him how he changed my life. Profound, in an indescribable way.
