This cutie is 6 months already! Growing and growing and nonstop growing. He had his six month check up just a few weeks ago. Everything looks great except he’s on a smaller side. Which is no surprise to us because Munchkin#1 is on the smaller side as well. Plus their mom and dad are tiny when they were babies. I’m not too concern about it. Each child is different.
When he started solids – he wasn’t a huge fan of it but now he’s alright with it. I started feeding him two times a day to now four times a day plus breast milk before naps and night time sleep. He’s been eating so much better and eating a lot. The doctor told us to feed him whenever he wants it for him to grow faster – so that’s what we are doing. That means making mommy a lot busier with his feeding schedule. I also started making congee for him. Which I enjoy making!
Six months old with an attitude problem? Uh yes – whenever he doesn’t want anything he screams his lung out! I never encounter this with munchkin#1 – so this was completely new to us. Basically he’s flipping out when he doesn’t want it or wants us to hold him. Isn’t this a little too early for attitude problems? A bit too early to send him to time out too. Sometimes we just ignore him till he calm his bum down. We do tell him ‘no no’.
He started lifting his hand out when we ask if he wants to be held. I don’t hold him a lot during the day but I do think he knows how to work it with his daddy when he gets home from work. Hahaha. Mommy is too busy during the day to be holding him all the time. I am not doing it! And I am not going to spoil him either. Once he knows he can be held all the time – it will be nightmare for me.
Although we are home most of the time. It can get quite busy with this Munchkin. His schedule includes 4 solids a day (3 congee, 1 cereal, and fruits after meals). It used to be 3 naps a day but I cut out his evening nap so he can sleep better at night.
He experienced his first Christmas – which of course he had no idea about. Firsts is always very special. We are so blessed to have him in our family.
Ill talk about sleep training for the next update. We wanted to sleep train him during the Christmas break when my hubby had a few days off but that fell through. Because we all got sick.
We are still giving him baths every other day to prevent dry skin.
Ever since he started solids – his poop has been stinky and very hard poops. Haha. Mommy is still not a big fan of changing diapers. Once when his daddy is home – he takes over that job! Haha.
Overall – he has very different personality then his brother. What was I thinking? I was expecting to be taken care of the exact same baby from 4 years ago… My first born was an angel to take care of when he was a baby! He slept well, ate well, no fuss, barely cried, and just very easy. I was probably expecting the same for my second child. Haha. As long as they are both healthy – mommy will take on anything. Even the frustrations and craziness. Nothing can buy health!
Big brother loves making baby brother laugh. He enjoys his company – that makes me happy to watch. Makes me feel like we did the right thing having a second child. Because they love each other.
Anyways that’s all the updates of last month. Stay tune for more next month. I love keeping a journal of my kids because I’ll never remember these things if you ask me a year later. Do you keep a journal of your kids?? Comment below to share!
Have a GRATEFUL day!!!
