Little man is officially a half a year old! I’m not sure how the heck this happened, but here we are! He is such a sweet and happy little baby. He is always smiling and laughing, and he absolutely loves to watch his big brother! He is starting to sit unsupported. He is also pushing up and trying to move!! I am in no way ready for this little guy to be mobile, but I may not have a choice soon! He is just ready to get to wrestling with his brother!
We started some solids this week, and he’s still not sure what to think. We are doing a mix of baby led weaning and purees, and his first food was avocado. I’m not sure why this is always recommended as a great first food because avocados are impossible to keep hold of. We have also tried banana which went slightly better, and baby oatmeal cereal that he mostly just liked chewing on the spoon. We’ll keep the exploration going, and I’m sure it’ll stick when he’s ready.
Isaiah has not been a good sleeper at all, and this is not getting any better. He is consistently up every 1-2 hours at night with an occasional 3-4 hour stretch. He is insistent on nursing every time, and he wants nothing to do with Daniel at all. Mama is tired, and I think we are going to have to do some sort of sleep training with him very soon. I am honestly not sure how I make it through most days, but such is the life of a mama. We have actually just started sleep training with him using Taking Cara Babies plan, and I will keep you updated on how it goes!
Overall he is such a happy happy baby!
