Six Months

Sol is 6 months old today. I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months. It really amazes me how much he has learned in such a short time. He had to learn to recognize smells, shapes, people, sounds.
He knows his name, his mommy (though he recognized me by sound and smell immediately), his daddy (I am positive he recognized his daddy’s voice immediately), songs. He learned how to play. I never thought about it before, but we actually have to LEARN how to play.
Eating is another one. Nursing is supposed to be a natural thing, but I discovered that baby and mother need to learn this. It was pretty difficult and sometimes really frustrating the first week or 2. Now he is learning to eat some solid foods. He’s pretty good at that. Everything I read made me expect our first tries to be very messy, but he is surprisingly good at it. Still slightly messy, but I think I would worry if there wasn’t some mess. Hehe. For those who know, he is definately his daddy’s son… I have know idea how he got cereal on his eyebrow… (I am following our pediatrician’s advice on nursing him for at least a year – the food I have given him is mainly to see how he handles the taste.)
Yep, pretty amazing.
