He's pretty sad about it, though.

Yes, He Had No Banana

This morning Kieran had his first experience with solid food--mashed bananas--and he was not impressed. It took awhile to coax him to open his mouth, and when the banana hit his tongue he scowled. After that he kept his lips firmly closed. He did enjoy playing with the spoon and some banana that I deposited on his tray.

I was suprised he wasn't more interested. The boy is an enthusiastic nurser, and he has grabbed food off my plate and attempted to stuff it in his mouth before. I imagined him eagerly gobbling down his first taste of solids. Oh, well. We'll try again tomorrow.

That's his instructor on the left.



The steering wheel, like everything else that isn't food, goes in his mouth.


Note the hands at 10 and 2 and the intense concentration.

Didn't I have an entourage around here somewhere?


I don't think he quite understands what the snack tray is for.

6-month checkup

We belatedly took Kieran in for his 6-month checkup on Wednesday, only 3 weeks after he turned 6 months. He got a battery of shots, which he tolerated surprisingly well once the sticking was over. No fever or serious unhappiness, though he's gotten a bit of a runny nose since yesterday.

Oh yeah, stats. He's up to 18 lbs. even, and 27 ¼ inches long. Those are 50th and 75th percentile respectively. His head circumference was 45.2cm, which is excessively precise and about 70th percentile. Everything else was fine.


Neatly coiffed

Still surprised by the camera

A sit-up little guy

6am Sunday, I was struggling to figure out something to do with with this little fellow that wouldn't require me to get up. The highly questionable conclusion I reached was that it was high time this boy learned to sit up. We haven't done much to encourage him sitting independently. So I set him up. And he fell over. And so I set him up again. Within a few minutes, he was able to sit up stably for 5 minutes. We've given him lots of practice since then. Now we have a boy who sits up.


This picture would have been great...


... if only my aim had been better. Uma kind of needs the top of her head. I couldn't get very far away because Kieran wasn't exactly stable. I guess I'll have to settled for this one:


Arrrr, I'm a captain, arrrr

How did that happen?

Kieran doesn't need groceries


He's got plenty to chew on.

Kieran enjoys the gas station


And you thought we didn't take the kids anywhere interesting.

Tumbleweed in training

I have been informed by a generally reliable source that Kieran has rolled over from his belly to his back at least two times.


Dinner station


He lost interest in sitting on my lap a while back.

Cups and cups


He likes to gag himself on the handle. At least, I think he likes it. Why else would he do it so much?
