Mr HK you are 5 months old now! Wow that flew by. Thankfully you are all better now and have had a really great week. The big news is we started food - and you get very very excited. We have decided to do baby lead weaning with you which means no mushed up baby goo for you - we are letting you play with and explore food with the hope that you will eventually eat something. So far your favorite food is - - wait for it - - cucumber. What a healthy little guy - especially interesting considering it is your Dad's least favorite food. While I have been having lots of fun seeing you start food I am a little sad too - such a big boy already not just my little boobie monster anymore. Oh and you rocked that swimming lesson this week and looked super cute in your flash new swim suit.
