half birthday.

Six months old... how are we here already?!

Friday was Lachlan's official half birthday and we celebrated by going and getting his 6 months vaccinations :: poor kid. However, the sliver lining in the 6 month vaccination appointment is that we won't have to go back for another 6 months. Hooray!

My suspicions were also confirmed at our checkup when Lachlan's height and weight were taken :: 71cm (28in) and 7.7kgs (17lbs). We've got a taaalllll (90%) boy on our hands!

Current Party Tricks: sitting up all my himself, squealing, smiling at strangers... or anyone who talks to him, twisting around in his bed, making a coughing like sound when he wants something and eating like he has been doing it his whole life even though he only started solids three weeks ago!

3 May 2013- 6 months004

Current food: momma milk, peas, broccoli, green beans, spinach, corn, pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, pear, apple, kiwi fruit, mixed berries, peach, banana, yogurt, rice crackers and a little bit of rice and chicken. We are starting with more meat this week! Momma might be a little bit obsessed with making baby food.

Hey, there could be worse things to be obsessed with, right?

He loves, loves to stand.

He is still vomiting all. the. time. But is growing like crazy and totally happy when it happens. "Happy Spewer" they call it here...

3 May 2013- 6 months009

He still has no interest in rolling over or even playing on his tummy. I think it has something to do with the vomiting mentioned above. Maybe we will just skip the whole crawling phase and go straight to walking.... or maybe not??

He is wearing 6 month size clothes (has been since 5 months) except for anything that has feet- then it is the nine month size because he is so long.

3 May 2013- 6 months012

No teeth yet but I fear they are not far off. He rarely puts toys in his mouth but can't get enough of chewing on his hands or ANY kind of food you give him.

3 May 2013- 6 months014

He still loves bathtime and spends most of his bath laying on his back and kicking (or swimming as we call it) like crazy. He can now sit up in the bathtub on his own but prefers to lay on his back so that he is kick his legs like a mad man.

His eyes are clearly dark brown now and he has lost most of his dark, thick birth hair and grown new, light brown hair in its place. He still has one patch of darker, thicker hair in the back which sometimes looks like a little rat tail :)

He is the light of my life and we are so lucky to call this sweet boy our son! Here's to another fun and fabulous 6 months... because the 3 November will be here before we know it!

Love you so very much my little bubba!
