I wanted to wait until after the holidays before starting solids...one less thing to do...but Alanna was ready for it now! After many nursing sessions ending with her sucking like there's no tomorrow, I decided that she could probably use a little more food in her tummy. I will have to say that she is a great eater! Waiting until she was 5 months old makes it a lot easier to feed her...as opposed to when I started Caleb--3 1/2 months.
Caleb finally mastered how to write C's and then turn them into O's. All summer long, he would try and do it and then give up because he couldn't get it right. Now that it's winter, he finally got it. I'm sure he can't wait until next Spring when he can continue his new skills.
