Little mister is now officially on solids. He opened his mouth on Thursday to accept the pears I was offering him. I was so excited that he ate. Then I cried. It’s bittersweet in a way. He has been sleeping through the night since last week. Happy coincidence? I think not. I am thrilled! It’s amazing what seven hours of sleep can do for a person!
Today we tried sweet potatoes for the first time. They were a huge success! I must admit that the Gerber baby food is pretty darn good. I had bites of his bananas, pears and sweet potatoes. I’d eat them too! My cousin prescribes to the idea that if she won’t eat it she won’t make her son eat it. I think that’s a fantastic philosophy and I follow it too, unless medically necessary.
So, here’s to another good night’s sleep!
