Feeding at 6 months

Greg today ate some rice cereal we made at home. He loves eating solids (as long as it's not actual baby food). We are mainly using the baby led weaning technique, which have found good though you must be so extra careful he doesn't choke. We tried feeding him pureed foods as well mainly to get him the hang of swallowing more but is not interested in it at all!! So far he enjoys raw tomatoes, melons, rice cereal with tomatoes, onions & garlic, banana, pizza, bread, roasted potatoes, his grandmas' soups..... his tastes though vary because today he would eat the banana and the next day he doesn't want it. Other than that he is a great eater hehe and prefers to feed himself rather than us feeding him, which I like as he controls the amount of food he takes.

Apart for the feeding, our little puppy is sitting for a long while without actually toppling over which is fantastic and he tries his best to crawl and stand up on his own. He isn't actually crawling yet but I am quite sure he will be by the end of Summer. Also he can get himself to stand up with something to hold on to, but will topple over within a few seconds :) We give him a lot of tummy time so he gets the opportunity to try and crawl especially with his toys just out of his reach.

In this month he has made sudden progresses which impressed me a lot and I am looking forward to seeing more! And when I get home, it fills me with so much joy when he smiles and opens up his hands for me to take him in my arms. Or the way he wraps his arms round my neck or his smile when he would have just woken up.....
