Stacey Solomon has admitted she’s an “emotional wreck” after her baby son Rex reached several milestones.
The mum-of-three took to Instagram on Sunday to share news that the adorable eight-month-old is now sitting up by himself and has said his first words.
And while she was clearly proud of her youngest son, the 30-year-old admitted that she wanted to “stop the clock” and have him be a tiny baby for a little while longer.
Stacey posted two cute snaps of Rex dressed in a brown babygro and playing with a toy as he sat up and beamed for the camera.
She captioned the picture: “Today I rolled up and sat all by myself mummy. So it just feels like time is flying by faster than ever before.
“I was playing with him on his mat and all of a sudden he just rolled around and ended up like this.
“He’s started shuffling around, singing and saying ‘Dadda’ which is all so wonderful and exciting but I can’t help but feel that I wish I could stop the clock for a little while and just make it all last longer.”
Stacey went on to blame her time of the month for making Rex’s milestones emotional for her.
She added: “I’m an emotional wreck at the moment, pretty sure Aunt Flo is on her way but never the less can’t they all just stay babies for a little longer please??
“On the up side my snack cupboard is tidy so I can’t really complain.
“Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend! Happy Sunday.”
Stacey is mum to Zachary, 11, and Leighton, seven, from previous relationships.
She shares little Rex with her boyfriend Joe Swash, who is also dad to Harry, 12, with his ex-fiancée Emma Sophocleou.
