He is learn­ing so quickly now.

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Best Weekend - - WE NEED TO TALK -

For Ni­c­hole Carter, her bond with son Har­ri­son, now 11 months, strength­ened when his sleep­ing be­came more man­age­able. She says: “The first few months were very dif­fi­cult for us. Har­ri­son brings us so much joy, he’s such a good baby but the first three months were pretty full on. He isn’t a good sleeper and it was only re­cently that he has started sleep­ing through the night.

But ev­ery time he does some­thing new it’s amaz­ing, that’s one of the most re­ward­ing things. We give him a big clap and he gets so ex­cited that he’s just done some­thing he hadn’t be­fore.

He’s try­ing to learn how to clap and high-five now. Ev­ery time he nearly gets there and then goes, “Nah not do­ing it, I’ll do it in my own time.”

One-on-one time is also very spe­cial and his smile still lights up a room.

He loves play­ing with other kids and he’s mak­ing friends with other ba­bies, they hold hands and talk their lit­tle baby talk, it’s very sweet. Har­ri­son loves swim­ming, too, he’s a mas­sive wa­ter child. He’s started swim­ming lessons ev­ery week and he’s to­tally into it, he’s prob­a­bly one of the only kids there who doesn’t scream in the pool!

His lat­est thing is wav­ing, he waves hello and good­bye to ev­ery­one. He’s learn­ing so quickly now. He’s crawl­ing and is so in­quis­i­tive, he’s al­ways pick­ing things up and point­ing at things when he wants to touch some­thing. He loves pick­ing things up to ex­am­ine them ... and then he puts it straight in his mouth.” Ni­c­hole and Luke Carter are par­ents to eleven month old Har­ri­son. Pic­tured at their Me­nai home.
