Myron Is 6 Months Old

Time flies.
And as I look at my "cutiest ever" wriggling a little in his sleep, I can still remember how quite bit tinier he was when we brought him back from the hospital.

Myron in his first month.

Myron turned 6 months old on the 6th of September, 2009.

Myron now has 2 little teeth sticking out quite obviously on his lower gum. The teeth sprouted the week before he turned 5 months old.

He can sit quite steadily when you prop him up and he loves playing with his toys on the bed sitting up. Occasionally he does end up like humpty-dumpty on his side or the back, so Mommy usually surrounds him with pillows, so that he fall would not be too much (at 90*).

We have also started Myron on his cereals.
Grandma gave him some porridge the other day (rice porridge in ABC soup, but just gave him blended rice), but he seem to much prefer his rice cereal with Mommy's milk.

Myron is now super at calling out to be picked up when he has had enough of playing by himself. He is like a Tiramisu, calling out, "Pick me up! Pick me up!"

His favourite colour is yellow, as seen by his forever-gnawing on this piece on the astrosaucer.

(See, he has turned the toy around, because the back is yellow. Funny baby.)

His "favouritest" playmate is his big brother, Micah. He will actually coo very differently to him, something that even Mommy does not get, And Micah can make him burst into peals of laughter by just saying a single syllable word, like "stick" or "pop" or "hic".

Myron's drippy nose seemed to have stopped, and that was after another doc advised Mommy to stop taking dairy products. Seems pretty effective. But Myron is still as drooly as ever, and if we don't was up his bibs everyday, the 15+ pieces that we have is not enough to hold for the next day.

Mommy's favourite part of the day with Myron is when he wakes up in the morning. He will usually talk to himself until Mommy wakes up or greet her with a smile, or he will look around until he spots her and give a gurgle and smile.

You sure make every morning a good morning, my beautiful boy.
You are so so lovely.

he progressed so well..think all mommies really love the way their little baby "talk"..guessed we will sure miss this when they grows up :)

how do you mix your milk with the cereals? do u need to warm up the mix to mix wif it?

Our Jouneys.... said...

wow...u really love this much abt him....

Moomykin said...

Uncle Lee,

Twins sounds pretty good, but I'll probably go totally mad then. Hahaha...

You have a good weekend.
Take care.

Moomykin said...

Blessed mum,

yeah, baby "talk" is so rejuvenating!!

Usually I just express into a bottle and then mil will mix into the cereal and feed the baby, while I chat with him. If the milk had been in the fridge, then mil will heat it up.

Our Journeys,

We all love all three equally, that is with every bit of our heart. It's just that Myron is a little more fortunate that Mommy started blogging before he came about and so such milestones get recorded.

I do blog about the other 2 boys too, you know.

Our Jouneys.... said...

Yeap, know that you also blog abt your other 2 boys. Just that it's interesting to see how much u on your youngest's fine lah...u love them all...
