Dear Lil Bean,
I can't believe this but you are half a year old! 6 months! Wowza! Time really flew by! This past month has been really packed with lots of developments! We started Baby-led Weaning and you are really enjoying tasting different foods! I'm really impressed with the gusto you show around trying new things. Long may it continue!
You also cut your first tooth! I noticed it last Saturday. It was very exciting because you have been showing teething sign since you were 8 weeks old. Because you now have a tooth, We decided to start brushing. It's easier said than done as you like to'help'. I think you like the taste of the toothpaste and the feel of the bristles on your gums.
You are also trying really hard with your crawling. You can move backwards and when you try to go forwards you end up looking like a crab because you move with your toes not your knees. You'll get there! I saw you push yourself up whilst in your ring yesterday. You were STANDING!!! I was filled with such glee but was sensible enough to capture it on film. This is something that is unreal after all you are only 6 months old!I know I have to have eyes at the back of my head.
We are going to have such fun together as you get more mobile, I can only imagine the scrapes you'll get into. You are such a joy to parent even when you fight your sleep or get cross at me for no reason. I strive to see things from your perspective but I'm sorry for when I don't. We are still getting acquainted. Let's make the next month an action pack one eh?
All my love,
