My Baby at Month 6

So she's finally half of the 12 months that she need to be one and all I can say was, I'm just proud to be her mom! Two weeks before she turned six month she can already sit a bit, still crawling, we let her hold on the side of her crib so she could stand. What actually amazed me was when she would almost fall when she grabbed the side of the crib! She actually had the impulse to know the cause and effect of things. wow that's really cool! Another thing I noticed, she don't like cerelac anymore. She prefer rice, steamed broccoli (seriously!) and whatever me and her dad are eating. We would have bought her a high chair if only there is pink available but there isn't. I wanted pink since she's a girl and one thing more, because some of her things are blue (coz no other colors are available) like the playpen and the bouncer as well as the hand-me-down baby carrier. 

I only prepared some cookies and kung pao pasta and my husband bought a cake from RR since we just had Christmas Feast about three days ago and family reunion the day before so we're kind of full of fridge won't be able to accommodate anymore food.

Yna is Teething!

Yna has a fever this afternoon. I was about to go frantic when I realized that it's already time. She's teething! Her lower gums in particular are so red and swollen. For a moment I was thinking why she just want to be carried and was irritated and making noise like she was hurt or something. Oh! I'm so excited and nervous at the same time! Well there's always a first time anyways. I was supposed to be potty training her today but of course it can wait. So I cold compressed her and gave her medicine and placed a koolfever on her forehead. She refuses to drink milk maybe because she can't tolerate the discomfort of her aching gums. And that's what is making me worry. My sister whose son is now 1 year and 7 months told me that there will be more of this, so I better be ready and calm. I really hope she gets well soon.. (sigh)

This Is What I call "Good Morning"

This pictures were taken yesterday morning at around 6:22 when I was about to retire. So late because of my unstoppable insomnia that won't leave me forever! So when I heard Yna making sounds (coooo, wahhhh, haaaaa), I just took my digital camera and take photos and videos of her never ending twist, turns and trying hard to sit. A very lovely and beautiful morning seeing her smile at the sight of me. Not so different from any other morning but that is what I call "Good Morning."

I just can't get enough of her!!

My Baby At Month 5

So this is kind of a bit frustrating for me though, we don't have a good photo shot last celebration of my baby's fifth month. Sorry I can't detail why.. But this one is what I think the best photo that night. That's her and her tita trying to blow the candle. It was Sunday evening when we celebrated Yna's monthsary because we also had a 'potluck' at church that morning. So we did not have enough time to prepare food, we just had Sans Rival cake from Red Ribbon (as always), home made pizza and lasagna. Well anyway, it's not the food that matter but how we have celebrated it (and the pictures!). So at this time, here are some additional milestones of my baby:
  • she can move by kicking when she's lying on her back or roll over just to reach whatever interests her
  • she likes to play with her food (and saliva)
  • she knows her name already that's why she turns when she hears her name being mentioned
  • she plays with her toys, although she can already do it at 3 and a half month, this time she really plays with them
  • she can hold her own bottle properly
  • she can pull her stomach up when she acts like crawling
  • of course she always bring objects inside her mouth
  • she was also able to hold her neck and head in a steady upright position

I'm proud of what she can do now. She never fails to amaze us everyday! I know that she can distinguish us from the crowd. By the way, we bought her a food processor as per her pedia's advice, to serve her with pureed food first until she's six months and can chew some. As of now I'm only giving her solid food three times a week, once a day. Just an introduction of solid food for her. I want her to like-no-love vegetable just like the son of my sister (the one after me).

Dice eating carrot
He loves vegetable so much. Aside from the fact that he has allergies to formula milk, chicken, and egg, he just leaned to enjoy eating veggies. I wish that I would be able to teach my daughter to do the same. Not only that it will be good for her, I don't want her to be a fan of junk food and pork. Well I know it will be up to us and how we will train her.
