I have seriously sat down to write this so many times. I guess it's time to stop making excuses seeing as we are now closer to six months than five. (sobsobsob)
Kieran, you are one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. Your face either looks serious or so happy, but all it takes is a glance from someone to make that grin appear.
We started introducing a little bit of food, and you LOVE it. We have made everything at home so far, and are trying to give you as much organic stuff as possible. You have had sweet potato, bananas, applesauce (homemade- so much better than the store bought stuff, and Dex loves when I make it too. You both eat it warm), a tiny bit of avocado (not your fave) and a tiinnyy bit of oatmeal (homemade, pureed- also not your fave. You liked it much better once I added some applesauce to it).
You are becoming a master at rolling. I now put you down and know that you won't be in the same position when I look back. You can roll from your back to your tummy and then to your back again. You have learned to roll around so you can grab whatever you want that is in your sight. This is sadly starting to think about how your days coming to work with me are numbered as you start to become a little destroyer. Soon Daddy will get to take you to the playground so the three of you can have boys' days.
You have also truly found your voice. You love to see how loud you can yell once Dex has fallen asleep. I think you want to see if you can wake him up. ALSO- the other day you started saying "mamamababababamamama" which I LOVE. Dex said "Dada" for so long before he said "Mama" that you being so close is awesome!
I don't know how much you weigh, but other than a little food you are still exclusively breastfed. My days with nursing were almost over at this point with Dex, so it is amazing to me that we are still going strong. And your cheeks and thighs show that you are definitely getting enough nutrition.
Declan is your best friend. Without a doubt. You two love each other so much. If you make an unhappy noise, he is there to give you a kiss and make you feel better. If you are lonely, he runs over and you get the biggest grin on your face. I hope this closeness continues, because you two make my heart melt every single day.
