My sweet little son Bluebird turned 6 months old today!
After single-handedly growing this boy from a bundle of cells to nineteen pounds of chubbiness (over 280 days on the inside, 177 on the outside) my body is certainly feeling tired! So although I’m anticipating many more pints of milk production in the months ahead, it’s nice that solid food is now putting in an appearance.
He is absolutely loving it, chomping on everything we offer him (and stealing some things we had meant to keep out of reach… handfuls of vanilla ice cream not recommended as a first food!) and relishing the chance to drink water from an open cup. Here you see him at the end of day one, enjoying sucking full fat plain yoghurt from a spoon. In true BLW style, I’ve been checking the dirty nappies, and yes he has been swallowing food!
The next stage of his babyhood is well and truly launched into!
