Half a year has gone by in a jiff since I had my second bundle of joy and she is definitely a little bundle of joy. H1 was such a high demand baby that we didn't get to enjoy her. It was more like getting through the day because of her constant colic. Maybe we are better parents as well the second time around. We are definitely enjoying H2. There is more time to play with her and interact with her because less time is spent consoling her.
H2 can now sit on her own and she loves to play sitting on the floor. She would topple over occasionally. but that doesn't seem to bother her much. We've figured out that there is no point in buying toys her. She has no interest in the carefully researched and selected age appropriate toys we throw good money on. She loves playing with plastic spoons, lids and cardboard boxes.
She loves to watch the birds fly by, the trees swaying in the wind and spends a lot of time looking at the ants scurrying by. I think she's going to be a nature buff.
She hums while feeding. Yes, she definitely enjoys her meal times.
Though she is no trouble at all, she is not a timid baby either. When akki starts playing rough with her, she will screech at H1 and would push her away with her legs.
H2 is trying to crawl now. She lands on her face most of the time because she doesn't know how to coordinate her legs and hand together, but she keeps trying.
While all this is happening, I am getting restless. I am bored to death at home and I am seriously thinking of going back to work. My pediatrician keeps insisting that I should exclusively breastfeed the baby till seven months. I want to do the best for my baby too...I don't know....what do you think?
