week 21

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.

  1. We did baby led weaning too. Well, mostly. It's a little scary how messy it gets when you just throw everything down on the high chair and they try to eat it ... yikes! Olive really loved pieces of roast pumpkin (which is a disaster to try and remove from clothes however). Kellie xx
