Half a year of mothering today. My boy so close to my heart, oh boy I love you. Made a paper crown for him in the morning, I gave him a wooden spoon to play with and papa a cassette tape. Later my parents came for a barbecue and we even had a tiny cake and blew candles! I was quite excited and singing happy half a birthday all day!
On other news: I´ve been trying the baby led aproach to solids, but still haven´t gotten the whole hang of it. Avocado pieces are way to slippery for him to grab (I read you´re supposed to coat them on some kind of dust but I´m not sure what...) and today he was very happily munching on some cooked carrot batons, but a whole chunk came out the *other way*, undigested! (should I have cooked them a little more?) Any of you fellow mamas got any tips on this?
So I´m very warm-hearted and tired and going to sleep now, I thought I´d post our birth story to celebrate but even though I´ve written it threee times, it still doesn´t seem just right...
