Agnes is 3 months tomorrow. Had her weighed today, first time for 7 weeks, and she's stayed on the exact same centile. We combi feed and BFing will probably be phased out over the next month. In the last week/ten days she's become mad for playing! Baby gym, cuddly toys, waving around anything she can get her hands on. She likes books now and follows our finger when we read to her or point things out. She doesn't look like a new baby any more, just a small baby. She knows how to shriek and adores squishy cuddles and skin to skin (unless it's bedtime in which case she wants her personal space). She still has no hair to speak of. She is obsessed with food (expert plate-watcher). Mummy for comfort, Daddy or brother for fun. She watches the dog and laughs at funny noises. She can be quite serious but doesn't cry often.
I am soooo broody!

My biggest baby is 6.5 and is generally a delight, although a very tiring and hormonal one sometimes! He's just finishing year one and is doing really well at school, he particularly loves reading and is full of ideas and questions. He's almost up to my shoulder already and is going into the big boys shoe range this summer. I'm torn between wanting him to grow up and wanting him to stay little forever.
My smallest boy baby is just 4 and is so adorable - when he's not having a tantrum! He starts full time school in September and is really looking forward to it. I think he is going to find it a lot harder academically than his brother and we are trying to do lots of stuff this summer to help with things like pencil grip. We're also waiting for some speech and
language therapy for him. He is still the cutest and most affectionate little boy I know though and makes me laugh every single day.
My baby girl is 1 next month and is so chilled out and easy going. She's dinky, 9th centile, but makes up for it in personality and charms everyone she meets. She's getting close to walking and crawls at amazing speed and mostly sleeps through the night. For a teeny girl she eats like a horse and is still breast fed although usually only first and last thing. She's absolutely gorgeous and I'm really looking forward to having the summer holidays at home with her and her brothers.

A is almost 16 months and her favourite thing at the moment is books. Particularly ones with flaps. She also loves singing and clapping, and has come home from nursery recently having learnt the actions for incy wincy spider and wind the bobbin up. She throws tantrums several times a day when she doesn't get her own way, but on the flip side she is very sweet natured and gentle, fairly shy but will come out of her shell given time and security. She is quite skinny but tall for her age and an absolute beauty, so a model in the making! She is a complete adrenaline junkie and loves being scared (Dad hides and jumps out shouting BOO!, which results in deafening shrieks followed by belly laughter) and the sensation of falling so we cannot wait to get her to a baby friendly theme park!

Margot, your little girl and mine sound very similar :) A is 9th centile too and at just before 1 was mostly sleeping through with morning and bed breastfeeds, and wasn't too far off walking :)

Lovely thread :)
S is 9.5 months so has been out longer than he was in now ;) He is the most sociable little boy and anyone who even casts a glance at him in the street, in a coffee shop, wherever gets a full blast of his attention and he won't look away until he's given them one of his massive smiles. Seriously, he smiles so much! It makes me incredibly proud although it's hard to get anywhere quickly because we get caught in these smile-offs in the street!
He's not crawling yet but it's not for lack of trying. He's impatient (like his mummy) so any time he manages to get up on all fours is accompanied by lots of frustrated grunting. He's not a massively cuddly baby, preferring to be left to his own devices if he's tired or had enough but he likes to know where I am. He loves any kind of water, whether that's bath time, swimming, watching the rain or the little fountain thing in my ILs garden.
He also loves his food which is great as we're BLW and it makes everything so much fun :)

This is a fab thread!
W is coming up for 14 months and still a fantastic sleeper. He loves food, especially bananas an cheerios.
He can walk really well. He loves to play with his trucks and football. He's so chatty and will talk to anyone....except his uncle on H's side..He dissolves into tears if he even looks at him, which we can't understand. He loves to chat to anyone who will listen and is desperate to get out to play with the big kids.
His favourite TV is Mickey Mouse clubhouse, but he's also a big fan of Bananas in pyjamas and Thomas the tank engine.
He is a very intelligent boy. We put a dvd on to watch the other day and when the credits started rolling, he got up and tried to open the dvd player which I was very impressed with.

Dexter is 8 1/2 months.
He is very nosey, a people watcher like his mummy. He is currently sprawling across the sofa desperately trying to get to my laptop in between watching peppa pig on t.v.
Yesterday he started sitting properly on his own. Then he had his first "big boy bath". I was a bit worried that he would be scared of being in a big bath but he really enjoyed being able to play with his toys.
He loves eating strawberries, dairylea on bread, yoghurt, anything bread based and this morning he decided he really liked banana after us trying to give it to him for a couple of months.
He has recently started signing milk, but uses this same sign for food.
He is becoming very "talkative", mainly dada and other babbles.
He can be quite aggressive. When he gives kisses they always involve a bit of hair pulling, to pull you in for the kiss.
He loves being outside, going for walks and the swings in the park.
I hope you don't mind that I have included a picture.

Lovely to hear about the older babies and children, I feel like I don't know much about them at all!
Baby Xmas is 6 weeks today, and a bit more difficult than I remember my nieces and nephews being. She has nights when she sleeps for 4-5 hours at a stretch, but also nights like 2 nights ago when she decides not to sleep at all and just cries and screams. But she's smiling and does love her play gym. She grins at the toys as they move and bats at them with her fists. Oh, and she love when Wispa licks her feet.
