6 Months - What, Already?

Joseph is now 6 months old and I can't believe how quickly the time has flown by.
We've started going to a Rhythm Time class on Wednesday mornings and Joseph loves it. It's all babies and only lasts 1/2 hour and we just make music together. Joseph gets all excited and loves the noise and the singing and dancing (yes, I have to dance with him in my arms!) The classes last for 6 weeks, but I'm learning loads to keep doing with Joseph at home. It really tires him out too, last Wednesday he slept for 2 hours afterwards.

He has a cough at the moment which is making him grumpy, he really doesn't like coughing and cries every time. Also, it's waking him up so he's not getting much sleep and becoming even grumpier. Fingers crossed he'll be well again very soon.

Today I showed Joseph his bottle and he signed 'milk' with me. I don't know if it was a fluke because Lucy didn't do her first sign until she was nearly 9 months old. But I think I started earlier with Joseph. I won't be teaching him much, but it's fun and interesting to sign with your baby. Plus it's a good way of finding out if they are tired or hungry before they can speak, definitely a bonus.
