Zai Zai @ 6 Months

Again I’m late.. so caught up with work and my new place these days… i need more time.. to rest and play with Zai…

Did I mention before that Zai is able to flip back? he can now flip both ways, left and right.. and also be able to flip back onto his back… so these days he likes to roll on my bed… can roll from one corner to the other… kinda of dangerous though… and he will no longer lie on his back.. just like to be on his tummy to see the world.. but yet, he is not strong enough to sit on his own… we returned the bumbo, so now letting him sit is a problem… my mil tried putting him in a walker and lower him to the lowest so his feet can touch the ground… i’m not so into the idea of walker… cos i find it dangerous and clinically proven to be not good for babies growth… but I have no choice.. otherwise, my MIL can’t do her chores… *sighz*

And because he doesn’t like to lie on his back… helping him change is now becoming a challenge.. he will wiggle and wiggle… as a result can’t put on a pampers properly for him… *headache*

He also started on semi-solid food 2 weeks before he turn 6 months… first was the Heinz baby food in different flavors… he seems to love them.. always open his mouth big to eat… but there are times where he fell asleep while eating.. cos he is still not so good with the spoon… and just days before he turn 6 months, my MIL started him on rice cereal… he prefer the traditional cooked one from Eu Yang Sang, then the instant mix kind… with the start of the rice cereal, it means I can reduce my milk production output… i was getting stressed that my output wouldn’t be enough for him… but at least I pass my initial aim to BF him for 6 months… my next target, 1 year old… i hope I’m able to do it.. especially after his teeth starts to develop…

As for his reading sessions.. he seems less interested these days… he just want to grab the book and put into his mouth.. but the books are from the lib and its paper so its not so ideal… i hope i can find a way to read to him again.. plus i have been busy these few weeks also… time is what i need…

time flies.. and zai is already 6 months… when i think back on the day of his birth, it feels like just yesterday… and when i look back at his newborn photo i really see how much he grows… he use to sleep nicely on the nursing pillow, now his legs are dangling outside… I still can’t believe i gave birth to this little being….
