6 months old

It's hard to believe, but it's been six months since this little man made his appearance.



Right from the beginning his lovely nature was apparent.

At 2 months old his battle with eczema began. Exactly the same age that Calum (11) and Alasdair (4) were when theirs began.



I actually made up two photos for two months as I couldn't decide which I preferred!




But despite how sore his skin was, he still continued to charm us all with his smiles.





Then at 5 months old we made the breakthrough on the repeated skin infections with Milton in his bath.




At 6 months his skin remains the same. His eczema is under control with regular Milton baths, his steroid creams and Icthamol paste & 50/50 ointment mix. It's a daily chore but so worth the results.


He doesn't try and sit on his own yet but sits quite nicely on your knee.


He hasn't tried rolling over - there is always someone around to entertain him without him trying too hard!


He's still exclusively breastfed. I haven't started him on solids yet as I'm holding off until we get the results of tests to see if he has any of the allergies that his brothers have. (The tests are tomorrow!)


He weighs a nice healthy 17.5lbs.


He has no teeth yet but has been dribbling since he was about 2 months old.


He likes to chew on his thumb or his fingers.


He loves to watch his brothers entertain him, no matter what they are up to!


He doesn't sleep all night yet but I really don't mind the chance for those extra cuddles.



  1. He is so cute. Happy 6 months birthday Fraser. Love the pictures Kirsteen.

  2. Awww, what a handsome little sweetheart! Happy half-birthday, Fraser! :)


I love reading everyone's comments, so thank-you for taking the time to leave them! I try and respond to them here too, so do check back later on.
