I cannot believe how much has happened to Thibault in the last couple of weeks. Five months has seen lots of changes for him. He’s actually ten days shy of turning six months! I can’t believe that we have almost reached the half year mark. Let’s review all the things that have happened. My parents came for their first visit and Thibault got to meet the other set of grandparents. My mother is here for the next two months. I’m so happy and grateful we have all of this family time together. My sister and kids came for a visit last week and he got to meet the other cousins. It was most exciting for Flora though.
Two teeth have busted through! I am impressed how well he has handled this!
Thibault started trying solid foods for the first time. I really wanted to wait until he was six months, like we did with Flora. I assumed it would be easy because even at six months Flora had no interest in solid foods and didn’t actually start until seven months. And we really wanted to repeat the Baby Led Weaning process because it was so successful with Flora. She is such a good, well-balanced eater and I wanted to take this approach again. Well, Mr. T has been trying to grab the food off our our plates for a few weeks now and he was becoming more and more agitated at dinner when we weren’t giving him real food. So, we thought we could start the process a tiny bit early. It’s starting slow and some nights, we don’t even do it, but overall he seems to be enjoying his first taste of vegetables.
And to top off the big month of milestones, he started rolling over this week. While laying on his activity mat this afternoon, he rolled over onto his tummy. Every time we put him down, he rolled himself back up. It’s been an exciting month of our little man.
