It's a little strange to think that our little guy has survived up until this point on nothing but milk! But no longer! Blake is 5 1/2 months old, and we are going to try solids! The doctor recommends that a baby be at least 6 months before starting solids because 6 months is when the babies immune system starts to develop more fully, and they don't need as much of the protection from the mom's milk. We decided to start a couple weeks early because Blake has been having a really hard time sleeping long periods at night lately. We suspect that he is going through a growth spurt and needs to eat more. SO! Here we go!
Blake likes to grab onto anything in sight...especially my hair!
I think our first solids were a big hit! Love this little guy!
