Goodbye to Wellington, for now. Hello USA.

This boy is up for some adventures we are sure.

He's not even six months and he's

-standing in his cot
-almost walking on furniture

Watch out!

Too cute

Manaaki is turning into a little sugar lump. He's so cuddly and sweet. he smiles all of the time and works really hard trying to crawl. He's just started solids and has a little bud of a tooth creepin out. He's only 17 weeks. You'd think he was on growth hormones.

He's growing fast

Our little boy now enjoys sucking his thumb, standing (with a bit of help from us), splashing in the bath and smiling. Yay. We're enjoying all of that, too.

Smiles...and more smiles

Our gorgeous little boy is smiling. It seemed like a long wait for the first one but it was worth it. My heart still leaps whenever the corners of his mouth start to curl up.

We are still dealing with a few issues of pulling off the breast during nursing, much to the frustration of Manaaki and the Mamas. I've done a search on the web tonight and found some good information so hopefully we will sort it out.

In the meantime a few smiles make up for all of it.
