Dear TT,

You are 6 months! And you know what, the first food you taste outside MeeMee’s milk is durian! GongGong secretly fed you some durian one week before you turn 6 months! And I think you like it. MeeMee fed you again a few days after and you were licking it well.

And you have started solid. You are drinking brown rice in the morning together with your milk. Well, sadly, MeeMee didn’t know exactly when you started as your MaaMaa fed you without informing her. So MeeMee can’t really take a pic of you officially starting your solid. MeeMee is kind of sad that she can’t capture this major milestone. She was hoping to start you on a weekend so she can witness it. Well…

You are still the happy boy that breaks out into smile easily. But MeeMee seems to be hearing less of your LOL, maybe because you are more aware of your surrounding now. You still love you peek-a-boo and never fail to smile when MeeMee play with you. I heard from DeeDee, your JieJie love to play that with you every morning too.

MeeMee is happy that both your GorGor and JieJie love you dearly. They call out to you when they reach home. Often showering you with many kisses that MeeMee don’t get. And there was once where your GorGor woke up from a bad dream and MeeMee happened to be pumping milk and heard his breathing. I know a tantrum is coming up from him. I was still wondering how to pacify him while I continue to pump. You know what? He turned, he saw you, his breathing smooths and proceed to sleep beside you. He even shares his blanket with you. MeeMee is really thankful of that.

Thanks for growing well and staying healthy. MeeMee hope all this continues. And she is still trying to find time to read and play with you more.

Love,
MeeMee
