So seriously I was sure that if a bomb exploded and there was shouting, screaming, fire engines, police my son would just sleep through it all completely unconcerned. Well that was then and this is now. I used to be able to say that my son would only cry if he was really hungry or if he was tired. Otherwise he was pretty much unconcerned with it all and smiles all around thank you very much. Obviously though as he grows his personality is starting to get a bit more complex and some fussy highlights are starting to emerge! To be expected I guess after all he is a baby and supposedly they are not happy all the time....suddenly mummy has to work harder. The best development though is his reactions to certain loud noises. Thankfully with some he will only flinch, if it's a great clamour then you are looking at least 1/2 hour to settle him. Please tell me though that some of it is just a phase as recently you can't even sneeze in this household.
