Peas Please

Today you are getting your first taste of peas, big boy. I am steaming them now and can hardly wait until you wake up so you can try them. I think I'm excited because if this is anything like your sister's first time eating peas, I will be wearing them shortly. Good thing my hair is already in a bun and you've already spit up on me once today. But your daddy says you'll love them and I don't doubt it. So far you've had avocado, sweet potatoes, carrots and a pear, and have taken them all down like a champ. You are one hungry dude.

After peas, I think we are going bananas. Which is certainly nothing new around here.

Feeding Jackson solids this week has been a walk in the park. He's 5 months old and his first food (minus the ice cream and muffin Lucca has fed him previously..) was avocado. I made a little bowl for him, had Daddy on standby ready to film it, and was prepared for some awesome faces and a big mess. But Jackson, our child who we swear has been here before, ate that first bite of solids like he had done it 100 times before. No funny face, no spitting it out. Ate it and opened his mouth for more.

Today we moved on to sweet potatoes and he laughed after every bite. It was like he was trying to say thank you for the deliciousness. He LOVED it.

He was so ready for solids. The Academy of Pediatrics is currently recommending you hold off until 6 months before introducing solids. I considered waiting another month to follow this guideline, but we mama's know our babies. My dude showed all the signs he was ready & able to eat food, and boy Oh boy was he ever.

We are officially buying groceries for a family of four now. Whoa. Expensive.

The best traveler

Not quite 5 months old with two cross country trips under his belt...Jackson wins Best Baby Traveler award. You were an All Star bud. So chill, so happy, so easy.
