6 months

 

Our not so little anymore pumpkin is 6 months tomorrow… Cannot believe it how time flies!

And I’ve only recently managed to catch up only to his 12 week sketch in my baby journal! Still have a few pages before that missing too.

12 weeks

There has been so much change about him recently, just a few days ago he has finally figured out crawling, still not very confident but gets to things that he really wants. He seems to be so much more aware of everything, understands relationships between things, so interactive! Loves to listen to us speaking or reading a book to him, and if we go quiet will try to fill the silence by his own “talking” and babbling.

The last two months have been all about teething, and even though his first two bottom teeth came through over a month and a half ago, the next ones seem to be the upper canines and my God! are they taking their time and causing him so much irritation and pain! Poor baby.

With all that there has not been much time for me to draw anything (none at all to be precise). But I’m hoping to get some in over the holidays.

Looking forward to Matthew’s first Christmas!

Here are some more early sketches of my little one sleeping. I was even lucky enough to manage a quick watercolour portrait at one point.

At the moment I have a couple big things that I am trying to work on, so don’t get to do sketches of Matthew while he’s asleep, but I hope to get back to it soon and catch-up on some drawing from photos as well, to capture the significant moments in my baby sketchbook!

I am finally back here after two months of silence and I am so very happy to announce – our little adorable baby boy Matthew has arrived exactly 8 weeks ago!

He took his time coming to this world and made sure his mummy and daddy were truly desperate to finally meet him.

A healthy 4.3 kg at birth, he has already gained 2 kilos in the last 8 weeks. I have by now more or less figured out some sort of routine to help me get through the day and have even managed already to make some art, for some of which little Matthew has been the inspiration! I now have the cutest new muse in my own home, although I have to wait for the sleep time to really catch a moment and put my admiration down on paper.

Some of the first sketches of the sleepy angel below.
