Happy .5 Birthday!

Don't ask me how, but I've been counting Freddy's age all wrong. Uh.. yup!

I did a little birthday photoshoot excitedly last week, on 8th Aug.... when Freddy isn't 6 months old until August 22nd.  Strange mistake on my part!

So it seems I got to throw a little Freddy & friends birthday for his roughly 5 1/2 month birthday, under the guise of 6 months.

Minutae- who cares right!? PARTY yipee!!!!

A Baby Solid..

 It was a big day for the little man-

And as with any big day (such as one where you mash pumpkin all over your face) comes a mini photosession.  Well... in Freddy's life anyways!

I almost started him on solids at 3 1/2 months... I was in such a rush, not sure why.
Anyways after a couple of days of the odd teaspoon, he had a bad reaction to some apple and went ca - ra- zay! I realised it's quite a lot of work, and he wasn't quite ready.

Then I flipped into the complete opposite mindframe- hold off as long as possible!

Anyways, this time next week Freddy will be 6 months (ahh!) 
So, I started him on solids. Officially.  Pumpkin, specifically.

These beautiful Milestone cards are by illustrator Beci Orpin from Lark.

 He plonked his head in the pumpkin.

I bought one of these Age Hi Lo high chairs in carrot, with the thought it matches our house- 
and most importantly it's not a plastic monstrosity!
