I can't believe my little one is 6 months! It feels like yesterday when I held that little boy in my arms and he could not "say" a thing. He would just stare at my eyes and cry when hungry or wet. Today, he still looks at me but now he smiles and flirts! Soo cute, he babbles "ma...mmmmma" and I almost want to cry when I have to pack another pair of pj's cause he's one size bigger. Oh! They literally grow fast!
He has reached four milestones in three days! He has not one, but two little teeth peeking out like two grains of rice. How cute!. He can sit up inside his crib for about one minute with no support! He sleeps through the night inside his crib in his own room without making a peep. Yayyy! and he rolls over his tummy and doesn't complain anymore. It's just amazing how that once little helpless baby is now a little man and all of these happened within days.
Soon enough he would be crawling and Heaven help me! I took my first step in baby proofing the house. It might not be a big deal for some people but I switched to sport water bottles so I don't have to worry about caps laying around the house. I realized I had to make this decision one day I was coming down the stairs holding baby with one arm and holding a water bottle in the other one. Well, my "chew-it-all" baby reached for the other hand and stuck the bottle in his mouth. Thank God the cap was tightly screwed to the bottle!
And soon we're going to have to put up baby gates by the staircase...oh that's another thing that frightens me. I keep my eyes on him all the time but I feel like there's never enough supervision. I wish I could have a pair of eyes in my back too. I swear.
Oh well, I got scared when labor and delivery were approaching, I was scared when I first put him down to sleep inside his crib, I was scared when I had to give him his first bath ( now I bathe him twice a day), I was scared when I left him with my mom for the first time, I was scared when he put that bottle in his mouth but here I am, here we are! All those "first" are scary but as a mother, you always pull through. You can do everything, you are a hero.
Live and learn.
Live, laugh, love and LEARN.
