So my sweet and ornery five-month-old boy was not too interested in getting his pictures taken this month. In fact, his only interest was attempting to grab the big paper 5 that was taped to his belly and snack on it.
He simply was NOT going to crack a smile, no matter what we did!
Looking over at Grace…okay, she’s mildly entertaining, but still not smiling.
Mom! Give me that camera! I wanna chomp on it!
Ah, what do we have here? A little construction paper, and some tape?
Mmm, don’t mind if I do!
Instead of letting him devour craft supplies, we thought maybe it was time to try some solid food! We started with oatmeal. Here’s how it went:
“Are you sure about this, Mom? Alright, if you say so…”
“Well now…wait just a minute…”
“This stuff is GREAT!!”
“Ahh, keep it comin’ Mama!”
My big boy loves his food! And the cool thing is that they have done away with a lot of the old “rules” that applied to introducing solid foods. The pediatrician says we can go ahead and try new fruits and veggies right away, without waiting a few days in between each one. We make our own baby food, so this is going to be fun!
