Luke’s 1/2 bday!

It’s hard to believe but it’s true! Our little boy is 6 months old today!!!

We weighed and measured him – it’s tough to be accurate with a home scale (i.e. I weigh myself then again holding Luke and subtract the difference). It would appear he’s in the 19-19.5 range and about 28.5 inches long. His head is 46.5 cm around – still getting bigger!!

He also got to try “real food” today for his first time – and it was a hit! Here are some pics:

“Mmmmm … rice cereal” (pablum) … 5 tbsp = 1 tbsp cereal + 4 tbsp breastmilk

“Gimme gimme”

“Lukey likes it”

“Pablum-drunk” (people call the expression babies make after nursing “milk drunk” – a kind of dopey look – if you have a baby you know what I’m talking about!)

“Mummy wow! I’m a big kid now!”

Tim fed him – you can hear and watch the feeding here:

He did really well. He ate half of his food! (2.5 tbsp – not bad for a first try!) We’ll keep trying rice cereal this week and try him on a vegetable later on!
