This weekend was by far one of the best weekends with Charlee. I've mentioned before that she has been watching us eat. Seriously, hawk eye-ing us. I did some homework and we decided to try some real food this weekend. Times have changed and guidelines change daily on what to feed your baby and at what age to start. After reading everything and over educating myself on a baby's digestive system, I settled on Organic Oatmeal.
Did she like it??????????? This was her face this morning when we were getting her ready for breakfast, so I'd say so.
For starters, she only gets about 1 teaspoon of oatmeal mixed with 5 teaspoons of breast milk. I give this to her after she nurses. From what I've read, babies don't get much nutrition from food right now. Their little digestive systems aren't set up to absorb everything yet, so breast milk will still be her main source of nutrients.
I was so impressed how she knew to open her mouth and when to close it. She definitely takes after us in the appetite department. Girl knows how to eat.
This week the high chair will have to be put together, considering she is almost going ass over tea kettle in the bumbo seat.
Plus.....this part of the baby stage is MESSY!
In other news, Josh and I went to a Halloween party this weekend at a local bar and he won first place a Yukon Cornelius. Boom! 100 bucks richer! (but that all went out the door when we went to Target the next day).
I'm sad to see October go, but I love Thanksgiving and we are looking forward to starting new traditions with our new addition.
