It’s been a long time since I last posted anything here. There’s a reason for this.

I have realised that there comes a time when there is nothing left to post. Babies all start off with roughly the same requirements, but, after a few months, that changes and they become individuals, meaning that sweeping statements are simply no longer possible.

Right now, parenthood is a real trial. The cute little tiny baby who sleeps on your arm is gone and Sunshine is fine during most of the day but turns into a tiny monster in the evenings. He is now 9 1/2 months old, and, currently, is driving us nuts. We’re still waiting for teeth #3 & 4 to come through, which they just don’t want to. We’ve had almost sleepless nights, worry about his weight (he’s very active but not putting ON any weight), he’s still not crawling but rolling all over the shop and moving backwards, just never forwards.

Other babies can do some of these things or all of them. They’re all different. As such, I think the time has come to draw a line under this blog.

I’m going to leave it up for perpituity as the comments for pregnancy and the early months still hold very true. However, there is too much varied information these days to be able to make statements that x or y holds true for all children. I hope though that the blog as it stands will be useful to fathers in the future.

As such, I’ll leave you with the 9-month picture of Sunshine and then go back to helping M. to try to get him to go to bed!

All the best,


Sunshine 9 Months
