We had an amazing little weekend spent together and I even got a quick overnight trip to visit one of my best friends and meet her new baby girl so post to come on that soon. But first I wanted to throw this milestone post in the mix. In very focused efforts to get Walker to sleep more at night we decided to go ahead and start some solids. I started Elle on cereal at four months but just didn't feel like adding it to the mix with Walker just yet. I also wanted to wait until after our beach trip. But since we have gotten on a more concrete nap schedule we could accommodate an afternoon meal. So to the store I went to get some veggie mixes and fruit mixes. I always start with veggies. Fruits won't be far behind.
Since I wasn't planning on doing this I don't have a good high chair yet. Still trying to figure out what I want to get. I know what I want but just not sure I want to pay the price. So we winged it and used our little Fisher Price chair thing. It was fine. Walker wasn't totally into the spoon. It will take a little more work to get the opening the mouth part but he did okay the last couple times we have tried. After the first time I put a little oatmeal cereal in the baby food to thicken it up and help him swallow it and he seemed to eat more then! Sweet boy is growing up!
