Junior turns 6 months today!
My little man is 6 months old today! He is such a cheeky little man and can’t believe how much I love him to bits! It’s true what they say about the heart expanding when one has more kids! You don’t love one any less than the other… It’s truly amazing!
Now that we’ve gotten the mushy mushy stuff out of the way, I have to say my son has become a terrible sleeper! I am dreading going back to work if he keeps this up! I’ve lost count of how often he wakes up at night because I just say what’s the point? I look forward to the day he starts sleeping for 4-6 hours at a stretch. Right now he does the first 2-3 hours fine and after that he tends to wake up every 1-2 hours till he’s officially up at about 6.30am. Thank God my folks are still around so I’m able to take naps during the day, or else it would be another story…
Shockingly, we made it to 6 months exclusively breastfed! Considering my first experience with Aj I’m surprised we lasted this long! He definitely made it so much easier for us although I suspect this is one of the reasons why he’s not a great sleeper too but I could be wrong. Maybe he just loves the boobs so much he can’t afford to be away from it for too long… Yes, the only way he goes back to sleep is if I breastfeed him!
We went for our first settling in period at the nursery yesterday and he was awesome! He played and didn’t get upset until I can back to pick him up! He’ll officially start next month – please make him stop growing!!
We haven’t got any tooth yet but we’re sitting nicely and having two meals a day which he loves! He still prefers his fruits to veggies but he’d at least try them. He also seems to be quite ‘determined’, especially when he has had a enough of milk, he will turn his head in every direction but where the food is and he’s quite strong too, just like Aj! My mum says he is going to be as strong-willed as Aj, not sure how I feel about that but we’ll see! Oh and he loves looking for his sister’s trouble by pulling her hair, she still finds it funny… for now!
Happy 6 months my little man! We love you to the moon and back always…
