see food


we're starting again. as you know, solids haven't been going well. and now that my baby is about to be 8 months, we've got to get serious here. hopefully, we're doing it right this time. for the last couple weeks, i've fed ben nothing but rice cereal. and sometimes, he opens his mouth when i put the spoon near it. progress! then yesterday, i finally went out and bought him a highchair! one that sits on the chair. woohoo! (thanks amy and laurie and bud and sarah!) no squirming out of the bumbo anymore. so then yesterday, because he was strapped down, ben had time to try both rice cereal and peas. i plan to not waver from peas until we've given him a good, long chance to get used to them. obviously, from these photos, he is not there yet.

I have a friend who mixes the rice cereal with some other baby food (fruit styles or otherwise)...have you tried that?

I have the highchair that sits on a chair and I love it, how do you like yours?? Doesn't take up so much space. Hopefully the feeding gets better :)

as cute as Ben is, and he's pretty cute, those pea photos are just grim for us non-parents. yuck! poor kid.
