23 June 2007, Saturday

You went to the paediatrician to get you sixth month jab.

Your weight was 6.3kg, which means you gained 0.3kg over the one month. Your height was 66cm.

Basically, you are doing fine in the eyes of the doctor. He also confirmed that your teeth is not ready to come out yet, just a lot of saliva.

I mentioned your reluctance to eat the rice cereal. He said to just keep on trying and also suggested that I put it in a milk bottle and feed it to you in a more dilute form.

So this morning, I did that after trying to feed you unsuccessfully with the spoon. You did protest and cried but I refused to let you get away with it. In the end, you drank up the rice cereal but of course you also pushed some out. Daddy said that it does not matter as long as you got some of it in your stomach.

You turned 6 months 4 days ago and I must say that it was fun to watch you grow day by day. Of course with the fun, there were also the many difficulties. However, I have learnt to look at the bright side of things so that I would not be too stressed up.

These few days you seemed to be rather unhappy away from me. You would cry in your loudest voice when someone attempt to carry you. You would scream when you could not see me. Hence, we are stuck together by superglue until you learn that it is alright to be separated for a little while.

You have found out that your tongue is one good weapon to make us laugh. So for the last two days, you kept sticking out your tongue and pushing out your saliva. You look very cute with that long sharp tongue.

Well, all the tongue-sticking-out act should be an indication that you are teething. I can see your lower gums swelling a little. That would also explain why you keep waking up in the middle of the night crying. You had difficulty sleeping and hence I am also losing sleep. But all these will past soon.

As for your rice cereal, it was just my luck that you finished it the other time. After that time, I am still having a hard time feeding you. I hope you will try to eat your cereal and drink your milk so that you will gain more weight.

8 June 2007 - Friday

You had been an expert in turning over to your tummy. However, you are not satisfied in just doing that. For the past week, you decided that you wanted to learn to turn onto your back while on your tummy.

So you have been turning onto your tummy and then turning yourself back again. It is interesting to see your stunt.

On top of that you have also decided that staying at one place was not at all fun. So while on your tummy, you would push with your legs and using your head to help, you would inch yourself forward. Ah........ the first step to crawling!
