c's 6th month

C is 6 months old! How is it possible that he is now half way through his first year?!? Let me just tell you that I am so not ready for my baby to be growing up this quickly.  I feel as though we barely have a chance to get used to the stages C is in before things up and change again.  The changes are constant and seem to be happening all the time making it so that there is never a dull moment to be had.

At 6 months old, C now weighs 8.2 kgs and is 70 cm tall.  He continues to thrive and grow and I am so pleased with all of his progress.  C can turn over from front to back and back to front, stay sitting up unassisted, spin in a circle while laying down, roll around all over, hold onto things, reach for things, and talk and laugh lots.  C continues to be curious about everything around him and is constantly craning his neck every which way in order to not miss anything.  He loves to watch what is going on and definitely is wanting to participate more and more.  He also is still eating like a champ! C eats solids 2-3 times a day, nurses for what seems like a gazillion hours, and loves to drink water from a sippy cup.  He is still only eating pureed foods that we make at home and enjoys vegetables, fruits, and rice.

C's lovely personality shines bright.  From the moment he wakes up, he is full of smiles.  He is such a happy camper and only fusses occasionally.   I so hope that he remains this way as he gets older! C also really loves to be around people.  He is happy to be on his own, but definitely seems to prefer to be around others.  This is great as whenever we are out, people (men, women, young, and old) constantly come up to C and he is happy to play with them all.  In fact, he likes people so much that he willingly goes to strangers all of the time.  It is great when we are at a restaurant and the servers take him, giving us a chance to eat without rushing too much!

Highlights for this month include: trying sweet potato, dressing up for graduation, getting the chicken pox, sitting up unassisted, and playing in his new walker!

Happy 6 months C!

Naked baby!

Look at him ready to go! :) 

The may faces of C!

What a handsome little dude!

Representing his ethnicities...Chinese, Canadian, and American! 
We'll have to include Thai next time too.

So serious today.

C loves sitting up!

Loving the clasped hands...


On his belly.

Oh C!

I love you C!
