A First for Everything

I have made an executive decision today to start feeding Keegan regular food. The baby food and formula every week has been adding up and I am learning that he can eat about anything. I have been a little confused how to make this transition, but I don't think I can go to wrong. (right?) So, for the first day he ate banannas and toast for breakfast and turkey sticks (yuck!) and peas for lunch. The peas had a hard time making it in the mouth, but he did okay with them. However, after I made this decision, I started to realize how fast he was growing up so for dinner we had a gerber jar of food. I have to use it up anyway!

For the afternoon Keegan and I headed out to the pool. I have been excited but also dreaded this experience. In the past few months everytime we got near a pool he grabbed onto me so tight like he was scared of it. But today, mom had to get her tan on and he had to move past his fear. We walked in slowly and then I started splashing the water to make it feel a little like the bathtub. It was a sucess minus the few gulps of water and choking sessions. We had big smiles and loud screams which equaled more pool time this summer!

Right on with the solid food. Formula and baby food gets so expensive; so the earlier you can get him off it the better!!!

Getting Mallory off the bottle and onto food was as simple as just cutting her off the bottle/baby food and only offering regular food. Otherwise, she would just cry for the other stuff. It worked - not sure how, but it did.
