Leo turns 6 months today! He just started sitting up on his own this week and I’m SO excited about that! That is one of my favorite milestones! It’s so nice to be able to sit them upright. He is reaching for toys and grabbing EVERYTHING in sight. I got this blue chewbeads necklace so that I can actually give him something in his hands instead of my hair when I’m holding him. He really likes it! And so do I :)
What I love most about this month, is how he is really responding to us now. When he sees me he gets excited and puts his arms up for me to hold him, and that’s just basically the best thing ever. Heart melts a million times. He smiles whenever you make eye contact with him and he is so so so happy. I love to go get him from his crib when he wakes up because when he sees you he gives a huge smile! Such a sweet baby boooooooy.
He is super ticklish and whenever he starts laughing he gets the hiccups! It’s so cute and funny! He really likes to watch anything Ivy does. She tends to keep him entertained and she likes to talk baby talk to him which is adorable. She also likes to hog pile him and sit on him. Humph : / Sorry Leo
We have started to give him some food. I did baby-led weaning (read this book if you’re interested) with Ivy (see her in action here), and we plan to do it again with Leo. We got him this high chair to sit up at the table with us, and I’ve attempted to give him some things and I can tell he’s not quite ready for it yet since he kind of just started reaching out for things. But so far he’s been getting a bit of our food and he makes faces at everything! Except the ice cream and chocolate Grandma gave him! Haha! I’ll be giving him bits and pieces here and there for another couple weeks then hopefully his hand-eye coordination will be better so he can pick things up himself.
