My Jamie has very dry skin and I think it is eczema. Some parts of his skin are flaky and dry. Every day I will rub lotion all over his body and rose hip oil on the affected skin.
Eczema on his face?
The skin problem is improving slightly and recently I change his shower foam and detergent. As he is 6 months plus now I am introducing some organic products to him.
Happy Times brand from US
Dry skin on his hand
Balm and teething for him
And since mummy also has some skin allergy I also bought an organic balm. A moisturising balm safe for baby too.

Received a call from my mil and she told me my Jay fights almost everyday! He is in Kapit for almost 2 weeks and Jan joined him last Friday.
There is a little girl whose mum worked with my mil in her canteen. The girl is one year younger than Jay but almost same size with Jay.
Whenever my Jay comes back for holiday, the little girl will fight with him. My in-laws treated the worker and her kids as their own. The kids called my in-laws "gung gung" and "mah mah".
So you could imagine that they are been loved by my in-laws in Kapit. When Jay comes, the little girl may feel threaten and this may cause the reason for competition. Ended up in scratching and fists fighting. Lol.
My Jay initially lost to the girl in fight but after a week there he actually can win after the little girl. My mil commented he knows how to defend himself and fight back. Lol.
It is part of growing up. Kids fighting etc. As long as it is healthy and no one really get hurt, I am alright. My Jay has grown up. Now he knows how to fight with other kid. Lol.

Our baby Jamie is 6 months old today. Look at this chubby and active baby! Such a darling!
He learnt to self soothe to sleep now and most nights he will wake up once or none for feeding. During the day, he will take one short nap in the morning (about an hour) and one long one in the afternoon (2 - 3 hours). He also love to sleep like the above picture with his head tilted to left side or sleep on his left side. He sleep mostly on his baby cot and our bed instead of his cradle. I am slowly weaning him off from his cradle since he loves to turn in the cradle which is rather unsafe.
I know that babies as young as 6 months old can recognise voices and faces of their mums or dads. I think my Jamie can recognise my voice as well as my face. He also recognise his sister and brother's voices as they played and talked a lot with him.
Jamie also love to practise his vocal. He shrieks and screams most of the times. He does have that high pitch shriek to attract our attention.
He started to take his first taste of solids on his 5th month. So far he has tasted rice cereal, apples, oranges, and few sips of chicken soup! He sure enjoy his food. Everytime he sees us eating, he will make those cute chuckling sound, and swallowing his saliva. Lol!
With his soft toy bear
His hand motor has also improved a lot. He can grab and hold things stronger now. I also train him to hold his bottle now. His eye coordination is also better as he can see things very far. Now I am teaching him some colours and story reading. Every nights, our routine would be learning and song singing before bed.
He is also a moody baby. If he does not get his way, he will pretend to cry or wail for a while. If still no response, then he will really cry out a loud. He can throw tantrum if he does not get what he wants. Sometimes it is fun to make fun of him just to see him in temper. And now he even know how to spit and play with his saliva. *faint*
He can turn to his stomach without trouble, but not yet master the skill of turning back. Soon I am sure. His backbone is stronger now too, as he can sit straight. Prefer people to carry him straight as he likes to look around. No longer like to lie down for long.
Soon my baby will be able to sit well and grow his first baby teeth. He grows so fast! I am excited and happy with his progress but same time, sad that he is growing so fast....Lol!

This morning I received a reminder letter from Jay's kinddy on primary school registration. Oh dear! Time really flies. My Jay is going to celebrate his 5th birthday in 6 months time.
It is March now and it is time to register your 5 years old to the primary school of your choice. This afternoon I have ready the necessary documents and made few copies. Will collect forms from school tomorrow. Will enrol him in the same school with the sister.
Have you done so for your 5yo??
