Rafa is 6 months old

Thursday, July 26th, 2018


My little Rafa is already half a year old. It went so fast, that I didn't even had time to update the past 4 months. A lot happened, but mostly I got smaller and Rafa managed to get way bigger. He is blabbing all day, rolling and moving around. No crawling yet, but he's able to move a bit when laying on his stomach. One downside to living in Asia is the distance to our families. I wish we could be a bit closer to our family so they could be more involve in the boys childhood. My brother and sister-in-law recently visited for almost two weeks and it was the best feeling. I'm so happy that in less than 2 weeks we go to visit our whole family, and even meet new babies.

Here's an update on our Rafaroo:

How old is he: He is 6 months old.
Baby Rafa's size: At his 6 month check up he weighted 7.9 kg. and was 63 cm tall.
Best moment the past months: Four months have passed since my last update on Rafa, so a lot has happened. We took the whole family to Japan. It was an exhausting trip, but nevertheless we created amazing memories the four of us. Also, my brother and sister-in-law came to visit us in KL, and we spent a few days on the Thailand beach. I've been loving seeing Rafa develop into a more independent boy and exploring his world.
Sleep: He's a very good sleeper, thank goodness because a few night Matias wasn't feeling good which we were up at night for him while Rafa slept. A few nights Rafa can manage to sleep through the night, and other night just wakes up one time for milk. Hopefully I can stop the night feeding soon, so he and I can sleep even better.
Movements: He is rolling onto his tummy every single time I leave him laying on his back. I have to be very careful now because he will roll no matter the place he is in. He still doesn't roll from his tummy to his back so whenever he is on his tummy and gets tired, he starts to complain and asks for someone to rescue him.
Nicknames: Rafa, Rafaroo.
Mama's experience: My little boy is growing so fast. Already wearing size 9 to 12 months. Everyday I feel grateful for these two little boys that I can call my sons, and the responsibility to look after and guide them through life. It isn't rainbows and unicorns the whole time. jeez, sometimes I need a time out for myself, but at the end of the day I am trying to be the best mom for them, and growing personally with and through them.
Looking forward: Our trip to Canada and USA!!!
