Almost 6 Month Old

Tomorrow, he’ll be turning 6 months old. I didn’t realize that it’s been half a year since I’ve stopped working. Some of the things that he can do now are:

– Loves to sit up with our support

– Still enjoys tummy time though not as much now that his favorite is sitting up

– Loves to be read to while sitting in our lap

– Explores his hands with his mouth

– Explores our hands with his mouth (Yes, he grabs our fingers and then licks it)

– Knows how to hold objects with both hands

– Passes his toys from one hand to the other

– Can see across the room and often follow me with his eyes while I putter around the room

– Smiles happily when we look at him

– Recognize his bottle

– Can hold his sippy cup and shove it in his mouth (but don’t think he’s really drinking from it?)

– Opens his mouth for the spoon

– Attempting to chomp on the teething tablets with his toothless gums! (we were really surprised, coz previously he kinda pushes it out with his tongue. But yesterday, we heard a definite munching sound. So I guess all the silly sounds of me going ‘ahm ahm ahm’ while eating food in front of him paid off)

– Laughs when being tickled near the armpit and feet, when we make funny faces, hearing me crunch rice crackers, lifted up by the chest, seeing his reflection, sometime no apparent reason at all.

Things that are still work in Progress:

– Seems to be trying to flip from back to tummy

– Trying to crawl but usually fall flat on the face

14 May: Sippy Cup and Hand - I like both
