We had an awesome trip to #banff to celebrate Eva's half birthday  It was lovely to see her enjoying nature so much! She was at her absolute best - ate by herself, was good for the most part on flights, slept in the crib at the hotel. ️️

Eva's Baby Led weaning (BLW) #blw journey begins! For those wondering, the difference between Traditional weaning(TW)  and BLW is that BLW encourages independent eating from day 1. Babies gums are strong enough to chew on soft textured finger foods. They don't have to have teeth in order to do that. Except for a few obvious choking hazards, it is perfectly okay to offer your baby what you eat (factoring very less salt and sugar etc) 

Also, before starting BLW there are some basic signs of readiness that have to be met - baby should be around 6 months or age, be able to have strong neck control, sit up unassisted for atleast a minute to avoid choking hazards. 
Here's Eva enjoying her first BLW breakfast of lightly buttered toasted bread and sliced Blueberries to make it BLW friendly. Food should be offered in easy to pick style, hence the strips.

A lot can change in a year. Last year, I flew back from India on July 9 after our second IVF cycle took. I was 9.5 weeks then. This year today, our precious Eva turned 5months old. Thank you for choosing us Eva and making our lives brighter. Happy 5 months sweetheart ️️

Lounging ️️ Eva's first step towards learning to sit unassisted. She has developed a good back control, in that she doesn't fall back anymore. The problem is that she tilts forward and can't get back up. Using this seat (always under constant supervision, no more than 5 mins at a time) we hope for her to get more forward control too.

Eva's first meal didn't go as well as planned. Maybe because Oatmeal didn't seem as interesting to her lol  At this point we do not plan to give her pureed foods directly but will probably try mixing some with her oatmeal. Can't wait for her to turn 6 months so that we can start with BLW already ️

Plus IVF needles, 48 hrs of labor and excruciating pain while delivering Eva. Yes, tell me that again  Anything apart from the both of us pisses me off the most  I don't care if you lie to me. She is our daughter, she definitely has some traits of both of us ️️

Last year on mother's day we had just gotten to know that our IVF cycle #1 didn't take. We were devastated and looking at adoption & other options. This year today we have you in our arms. To all yearning to be mothers on this day, I'm sending you a special prayer, love, hugs and truckloads of baby dust 🤗. Your miracle is on the way too! Thank you my dear Evu for making me a mother and completing our lives.

P. S. I love the way you look at me ️️
