First Solids

 Bear turned four months old on Monday and had a visit with his pediatrician that went great (post coming soon!). She gave us the green light to start rice cereal/oatmeal so naturally we couldn't wait even an extra day to give it a try. That evening when Zach got home from work, we busted out the oatmeal and had a little messy first-time-eating-from-a-spoon party. It was a tad bittersweet, more so than I thought it would be. After solely nursing Bear for the last four months, it was strange to see him eating anything not from Momma. He found it a little strange, too. The proof is below...

 It seems like every day holds tons of milestones when you have a baby. I love it, but it also makes me an emotional wreck. I find myself crying at the silliest things, just because I realize how quickly time is flying by and that these moments with our Little Man are so, so very precious. He'll be eating food the rest of his life, but we'll always remember the very first bite he tried. He may not have loved the oatmeal, but he loves us. And that's all that matters.


  1. It is bittersweet right?! I posted about this just a couple of days ago!

  2. Mmmm Banana and oatmeal sounds delicious! I can't believe he already has the green light to eat solids. Sweet baby is getting too big before I get the chance to meet him! Nevertheless, I love him tons and you too! These pictures are so cute! Did he like it at all or was it too weird for him right now?

  3. ohhh, those feetie pics are too stinkin' cute!! i love that he's so content just holding em' like that! :) i LOVE the oatmeal pics and all of his faces! i think i'd be a ball of emotions too. time really does fly and it just is amazing how fast things can change. i am holding onto every last minute of this pregnancy because i know a part of me will miss it...but then baby will get here and more emotions will sweep in. pregnancy/babies are the most amazing thing in this world. and you definitely prove that will all of your sweet words, photos and love for your little bear!
    have a great thursday, brittany!


Thank you for leaving some love!
