Looking back, we see how God has been good to us. There are a lot of unfavorable baby phases that have passed such as evening fussiness, spitting up after feeding, clogged tear duct, and madness of getting bottle-fed. There are many of those that we still have to deal with such as fragmented sleep and short napping when he sleeps in his crib. Yet there have also been countless joyful moments, and many many more of that that are coming. It always makes me smile to see hubby is so crazy about his little buddy.
For his half year birthday, I made chocolate chiffon cake because I didn't have butter (chiffon cake uses vegetable oil). The finishing was chocolate butter cream and a baby goat on the center of the cake. I chose a goat because his 6-month birthday fell in the 15-day celebration of Chinese new year, and it is the year of goat (sheep). The goat's cheeks were reddish, because our poor baby just had eczema. He is getting much better though. The sheep was white because it's snowing outside. So, his simple half year birthday cake was very meaningful
Now that he's 6-month old, he can have solid food. His first solid food was steamed sweet potato. I cut the sweet potato to a size that he's comfortable holding. He grabbed one, put in his mouth, then spit it up while making funny face. He didn't seem to enjoy eating it, but surely enjoy mushing it with his hands.
Happy half year birthday our sweet baby boy. The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.
