I have kind of been dreading the "solid foods" stage for some reason, but at the same time was excited to see how he would react to it. It's just been so convenient to travel with all the food we need for him "on board". But, as we approached six months and he continued to just not be satisfied with only milk, I figured we'd give it a go. He was a little unsure at first, but has gotten used to it and does pretty well. For the time being I'm actually enjoying his little meal times and it seems like he gets better and better at it every time. We've tried a bit of water in a sippy cup and he's still not so sure about that, but he's certainly cute holding it and chewing on it. He sort of grimaces whenever the water comes out. Chad says when he takes a bottle he always grabs it and opens his mouth as wide as possible and tries to cram it in sideways, which is kind of what he does with the cup.
|Such a big boy!|
Although he's not "crawling" yet, he certainly is never in the same place that I leave him in his crib, so he's sure got methods of traveling around. There is a little toy hanging from his swing that I always thought was sort of stupid because I didn't think he could even see it and it doesn't move or anything, but the other day I saw him actually arched up with both hands way above his head trying to grab it. Go figure.
